Organizing works! A school is SAVED!

Friday, June 17, 2011

The Catherine Ferguson Academy in Detroit will remain open as a charter school. The announcement came as students, teachers and community members got ready for a noon rally at the school today, which was scheduled to be the school's last day.

The Catherine Ferguson Academy is a much-loved high school for pregnant and parenting teens.  

Rachel Maddow has done some excellent coverage of the issue, and her show sent handy-cams to the students.  Watch this clip, and check out some of what they shot.  Much appreciation to the hard working folks in Detroit and around the country who moved on this.  We look forward to CFA continuing to serve these young women and their children.
