so i volunteer with a great group called Level-Ten, and soon we will have our crazy awesome poetry collaboration video up on their new site (www.levelten.tv) so check back for an update on that. basically, three of my talented poet friends got down with me on the metro to speak about the achievement gap in education. we came up with a powerful piece that offers four different perspectives on the issue. also, check out www.closetheachievementgap.org if you are interested. i used to run that piece with Level-Ten.
if you live in the DC or Atlanta metropolitan area and are interested in volunteering with Level-Ten to help close the achievement gap, please do hit me up to learn how to get involved.
