African American Boys at Longfellow recognized for their Academic Achievement

A group of African American boys at Longfellow Middle School were recently recognized by the School Board. The self-named group, "Broth-A-Hood" (A for Academics), consists of approximately 45 boys who achieved advanced or proficient on the math or ELA CST in 2012. Below is a short video of them being honored by the Berkeley School Board on March 13. To learn more about the program, read the previous post Longfellow's "Broth-A-Hood" Group to be Recognized by School Board.

Congratulations to all members of the group as well as Principal Patricia Saddler, Vice Principal Chris Harrell, and teacher Tyra Herr.

  1. Check out an article about students of color celebrating academic achievement at Brookline Public High School in Boston. I don't have a link here, and I think it's easy to find.
