From Milwaukee Magazine:
On the day Dante Hamilton came to Nathaniel Hawthorne Elementary School on Milwaukee’s North Side, he was like most African-American children who enroll in urban school districts in the United States. He was already behind. . . .

The article continues for several pages and insightfully covers a wide range of relevant topics on schools.
