Want to find out more?

While our letter is very informative, I also recommend visiting these links to find out more:
1) No Child Left Behind
2) Poverty and Terrorism
3) School Drop Out Rates
4) CPS Students Dying from Violent Crime (Go to the August 17th post)
I want to emphasize the impact that social networking sites can have in spreading the word about tutoring and mentoring. There are numerous social networking sites out there, notably Facebook and Myspace and they are a great way for people to collaborate on different issues. But, wouldn't it be great if different communities, from the tutor/mentor organization in Chicago to a church community to the community that is my Public Interest Program fellowship, had their own social networking sites where current members and alums can share ideas, collaborate and change the world. Not a bad idea if I do say so myself.

Outstanding work, and great thoughts re social networking. We'll now be following things for our course here... "New Media for Urban Change"".
