Targeted Educational Programs

Very interesting article about new programs that school districts are using that target black males in order to make attempts to raise their achievement levels in school. Their is some backlash, saying that these targeted programs are negative because of the stigma placed on those students in the programs, but I personally think they are on track - you have students who have demonstrated their lack of capability in achieving in school, for various reasons. I think it's absolutely called for to now take them by the hand and try to lead them back on path.
