We need modern schools in every neighborhood that eliminate the dropout and crime rate and prepare students for the best careers and life.( With Music on Their Minds There’s No Time For Crime) This large transformation will not take place from a top-down Federal or State mandate. It will happen when a community, neighborhood, or citizen’s group drives the effort by organizing and creating demand for high performing schools. We believe change happens best when it is bottom-up or top-down initiated, bottom-up driven, and top-down supported. Become a part of this movement and join the cause Now!
