The stigma attached to the phrase “inner-city public high school” is powerful and alienating to many students and families. It is also not accurate. I’ve just completed my sophomore year at Barack Obama Academy of International Studies, located in the former Peabody High School building in Pittsburgh’s transforming neighborhood of East Liberty. I attended a private, single-sex elementary and middle school before coming to Obama. Over the past two...
Step #9: Please be sure to stress the words, Don’t Procrastinate. That’s a lot more powerful than just “Push On” which is on the Cycle because someone came up to me after a presentation a long time ago and said that “Don’t Procrastinate” was too negative.

First vs. Princeton and then YPRO. A match-up with Greenwich Aquatics might come tomorrow. That will be interesting.
Robert Zullo gets it wrong. CRAP on this REPORTING from the P-G. There will be INDIE candidates that come to challenge the Ds. Sure, no Rs are going to win. But there is an election in November, and you can print a retraction or go back to 9th grade civics.
The four Pittsburgh City Council incumbents appeared headed for a victory over three candidates in a hotly-contested race in today’s Democratic primary, holding considerable leads over their opponents with nearly 98 percent of precincts reporting, according to unofficial Allegheny County Elections Division results. With no Republican opponents on the ballot, all four are all but assured of keeping their seats in the November election. In District...
