If you go to the live source.. you can see that these spikes in crime all occur in July.. during summer vacation. I've heard the theories that say it's because it's hot.. but I'm wondering if it's just because folks are idle.

I attended summer-school every single year from 7th-grade through 11th grade.. it kept me busy, gave me an advantage in school and if you add it up.. I got 10 months more education than the kids that did not go to summer school. I know it's a logistic challenge to run the schools all year round.. but why not? The kids that need the extra education the most are the same kids at risk for becoming involved with the violence in the streets. 3 more months of school would also equal more jobs.

Of course the self-interested-Teacher's unions would probably have a fit though.

But.. if, as Khasm13 says, education is the answer, the question then becomes:

What role does the present organization of the education system in Chicago play in the ongoing violence on the streets of Chicago?

just noticed also.. that violent crime is at it's lowest in February.. presumably because of either black history month (ha ha..) or the extreme cold.. leading me to the question: would a new ice-age solve Chicago's violence problem?

We we have school on the weekends also?


The present organization plays no role.

It's not their job to keep a kid from picking up a gun.

It's the kids parents.

Or in too many cases..parent, or grandparent.

Everyone always wants to blame someone else.

My wife is a teacher in an "urban" area.

8th grade math. My third grader knows her times tables better then most of my wife's students.

You can sit in a classroom 24/7/365. If you don't put in any effort you don't get any results.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
