Baby College

October 7, 2008

If you get a chance: This American Life (a radio program on NPR,) did a segment on The Harlem Children’s Zone on 9/26/2008 and it is worth a listen.  The show, which can be listened to here,  is divided into segments.  The prologue and Act 1 address The Harlem Children’s Zone and baby college, ” an 8-week program where young parents and parents-to-be learn how to help their children get the education they need to be successful.”  There is a new book out about the CEO and President of The Harlem Children’s Zone, Whatever it Takes: Geoffrey Canada’s quest to change Harlem and America.  FVRL has 3 copies on order and there are 4 holds on those copies.

*To listen: click the “full episode link” on the left side of the page.  The first two segments run about half an hour.
