Charlotte Anychild citizen schoolsCitizen Schools - 6 Degrees

Whenever my cousin comes to stay with us we have fun. He is in middle school and he is sooo smart. Grandma says things really turned around for him when he began participating in a program at his school called Citizen Schools. Grandma said he hated school and she really thought he was going to fail 6th grade. That was until a friend told him about the Citizen Schools program at his school. He had many friends who participated and he was invited to join. Now that he is a part of the Citizen Schools program, grandma says his grades are much better and he really loves school.

Everytime a new article or news story come out concerning the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) 2011-2012 budget cuts, I see the same comments again and again. Cut the entire central office, turn off CMS TV, use the lottery money. So are they listening?
