Jonathan Kozol on Tavis Smiley

Many of you asked to see the rest of this panel discussion that aired on C-SPAN on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I can only find one clip and it does not extend beyond what we already saw on Friday, but I will give you the link: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/clip/4310812. This is a very thought provoking discussion about how we give all of our children access to the American Dream and how we can overcome the challenges faced by those who are in difficult positions.

MYIHS Administration

Reminder that we will be holding an extended Advisory period to administer the MYIHS. After the survey, we will follow a ohe-hour delay schedule. That means we will not have any SSR today.
