It’s something President Obama should be proud of given our current political climate of might and murder over matriculation. Yes I said it – I value books over bombs. Especially when a well-funded, organized group of people (educators) can create a climate of success in one of America’s most challenged neighborhoods – East Oakland. The staff here is central to the success formula. Thank you teachers and administrators! I’m proud to be a part of this community, whether it’s volunteering or taking pictures. These folks are true superstars. Here are a few images from the inside of Lighthouse – a true American success.
