Tumaini gives Back To Oakland, CA

Kelly Miller educator Kwabena Tumaini wrapped up his 2012 speaking season with a guest lecture for poet Jasmine Hudson's Dewey High School after school program. Friday marks, "Fresh Faces" at Dewey High School so Tumaini presented his piece on destiny, goal setting, and critical thinking skills.


"Thanks again for all of your help last year. You have a really great way of connecting with these kids and it made such a huge difference to have your help and support in the classroom. 14.6% of our Algebra students scored Proficient on the state CST, which was the highest level of proficiency of any middle school class (from any subject) in Willie Brown's history. Its a pretty low number in an absolute sense, but considering it was 0% in the year prior, and 4% at the High School next door, we can certainly celebrate the progress. That means about 8 of the kids got High School credit as 8th graders, and the others are (hopefully) in a good place to be really successful in their Algebra class as freshmen."-Scott
