I tend to shy away from statements of politics or religion here because while I have my own personal convictions I do not want to ostracize or offend anyone. However this is a story that is getting national attention and I wanted to bring it to those of you who might not be aware of it.
I first read this story over on Garden Rant and then watched the Rachel Maddox coverage on You Tube. The story is about Catherine Ferguson Academy a school in urban Detroit for young mothers or expectant mothers. The school as part of it's graduation requirement expects you to go to college and will help you find a way to pay for it. There is daycare on site while the girls are attending class. In addition the school has a very large garden or "farm" with an orchard, animals and crops. This is a school that is getting it right and providing a chance for those who might think they have no options.
