Bullying the Voiceless: Last Chance High (Episode 2)

On Chicago's West Side, there is a school for the city's most at-risk youth — the Moses Montefiore Academy. Most of the students at Montefiore have been kicked out of other schools for aggressive behavior, and many have been diagnosed with emotional disorders.

Mr. Morris' History Haven

Strange and interesting facts about the civil war

During the Civil War, glasses with colored lenses were used to treat disorders and illnesses. Yellow- glasses were used to treat syphilis, Blue- for insanity and Pink for depression. Thus, we get the expression, To see the world through rose-colored glasses.

For those living in/shopping for old houses, or just watch a lot of DIY network or HGTV:

Centuries before and decades after the Civil War, including the war itself, doorways were wide, not because of the width of women’s skirts (as commonly thought) but so coffin’s could be passed through with a pallbearer on either side.

Celebrate Women's History Month

Principal Jermaine Kamau

March is Women's Heritage Month. We recognize that without the support of women like grandmothers, mothers, aunts sisters, etc. we could not have made it. Their support is invaluable. Many of my teachers growing up were women who served as positive role models for me and my peers. Let's honor them not only through recognition but also by the way we acknowledge and respect their contributions to our communities, nation and the world abroad.
