"There is no passion to be found in playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." 

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate and, if they can learn to hate, they can learn to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." 

-Nelson Mandela, freedom fighter and former president of South Africa

Community Action School is in the News!

On Thursday, August 28 the Community Action School served as the kick-off site for an exciting new initiative - the Everyone On Internet connectivity program. This endeavor will provide low-cost Internet connection to families who do not have access. During the kick-off program the school was visited by Chancellor Dennis Walcott, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Richard Culatta from the United States Department of Education, as well as representatives from the Everyone On program. Click here  to see a clip from Channel 7 News, which covered the event. By the way, the principal of Community Action School and the excutive director of Everyone On were mislabeled on the screen - the principal is the person speaking after the Everyone On director. Mr. Curry wishes he were still as young as the director of Everyone On!

Inside Schools recently posted a new review of the Community Action School. It celebrates the program that our staff, students and parents have built together. Click here to read the review.
