Canada in Milwaukee

From today’s edition of the Capital Times in Madison, Wisconsin, an article about Geoffrey Canada’s visit to Milwaukee next week, and the growing interest in the city in building something similar to the Harlem Children’s Zone:

Gubernatorial candidate and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is an enthusiastic Geoffrey Canada fan and is intrigued by the notion of developing children’s zones in Milwaukee.

“I saw the New York Times Magazine story about the Harlem Children’s Zone and I read Paul Tough’s book,” he says in a phone interview. “I was very interested in how these ideas could be applied to Milwaukee.”
