Children’s Aid Society Community School Earns an A, Urging for More to Be Done
As the City reports that only 25% of high school graduates are college-ready, we are proud that The Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School, a Children’s Aid Society community school partner, received an A grade on its recent Department of Education report card. Principal Nancy Mann appeared on Fox 5 on Monday night to echo Children’s Aid vision of preparing students in high-needs neighborhoods for college.
“We’re doing what the City considers to be a good job,” said Principal Mann “We think there’s a lot left to do.”
The Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School serves 75% Latino and 25% Black students with nearly all of the qualifying for free or reduced price lunch, an indicator of poverty.
