More from Austin

More thoughts on a replication project in Austin, from an editorial in today’s Austin American-Statesman:

Harlem is coming to Austin. No, not the Globetrotters but an anti-poverty program called the Harlem Children’s Zone. The program has had success in turning poor, at-risk schoolchildren into thriving students and college graduates. You might be thinking this is another welfare program that aims to make kids feel good about their circumstances. You would be wrong.
