EXTREMELY IMPORTANT MEETING WITH THOMAS SUMPTER — Pittsburgh Public School Board MemberI have a lot of decent video from the last meeting last week, but have not been able to upload it yet. The last meeting was long on the report of the I.B. site selection stuff. It also went to the heart of the matter that change is necessary at Peabody. Too many kids are dropping out of high school -- 35%. And, too few are going to college. And, too few that do go to college are able to graduate with a 4-year degree.
