Harlem NY Charter School Triumphs Despite Odds


As a board member with the Opportunity Charter School (OCS) in Harlem, New York, I’m familiar with the challenges facing children in an urban community.

Don’t Run, Sarah! Newsweek Assesses Palin’s Electoral Prospects (Again)


Two parts predictable, one part probable: Newsweek’s Daniel Stone takes a look at Sarah Palin’s Tea Party Nation convention speech and determines her unable to win a national election.  Shock!
