Ready to Learn, a year-round initiative created by the Center for Urban Education, has expanded this fall into Miller African-Centered Academy after two years of success at University Prepartory at Milliones.

“From a research perspective, we’ve seen both quantitative gains in grades and test scores and qualitative evidence that the program is impacting attendance and participation,” the program’s creator, Richard Milner said. “So, in those ways, it’s contributing to the success of students.”

It’s with immense pride that we congratulate CUE doctoral student and K. Leroy Irvis Fellow Ira Murray, whose recent paper was awarded this year’s Doctoral Student Paper Award from the Center on Race and Social Problems. Murray’s paper, "Not as Much as It Should Be”: How Community-Based Outside of School Time Programs Attend to Black Male Sociopolitical Development,” started as a project for Dr. Amber Pabon’s qualitative methods class.
