Transcript of Thurgood Marshall Leadership Academy
Leadership Academy Significant gaps for African American and Hispanic students are evident in virtually every measure of local, state and national achievement. Yet no developmental gaps exist among infants.
These educational outcomes are producing disproportionate rates of unemployment, incarceration and poverty for minorities.
The Urban League wants high quality educational choices for all students. Why the Urban League started a charter school High Expectations. No excuses. A charter school is a public school established to offer public school students innovative choices
Like traditional public schools, charter public schools must have open enrollment policies and cannot discriminate based on disability, race, color, gender, national origin, religion, or ancestry.
There is NO tuition. Any student can attend! Charter School Facts TMLA Mission The mission of TMLA is “to partner with students, parents, and the community to promote economic self-reliance, parity, power, and civil rights through a college preparatory education that fully prepares students for college success and socially just citizenship.” Core Knowledge Sequence- A researched based sequence of information that prepares children to be knowledgeable and capable of critical thinking.
