Black History Fact Of The Day

According to her website, long time educator Marva Collins started her own school (Westside Preparatory School) in Chicago in 1975, after being dissatisfied with the status quo school system.

Mrs. Collins biography on her site states that: "During the first year, Marva took in learning disabled, problem children and even one child who had been labeled by Chicago public school authorities as borderline retarded. At the end of the first year, every child scored at least five grades higher."
