He grew up in Africa with parents who obviously cared about his education.
Doubt I could say the same for most of the students at his middle school.

He said when he went to the US he was 13 & went to a school in the ghetto & was also bullied & under peer pressure. Those two situations & the fact that he was uprooted from Africa into a foreign land where other black people would not accept him, could have been enough to make him act out & make himself a victim.

He is 22. I'm 27. The age difference isn't that large. We could work. We share a similar culture and a love of education.

He went to a ghetto school for one damn year.
And he still had parents that cared.

Maybe you're right, we don't have access to the same quality of education but black parents should seek more for their children. Its 2012, you dont have to learn everything in a classroom

a HUGE issue.  parents think learning stops in the classroom.  it needs to start before they ever enroll and continue after school hours, on the weekends, etc.  parents act like school is a daycare conveyer belt...

this guy was gifted though.  i'm glad that his initial school experiences didn't discourage him.  

But the parents that dont realize this are rarely equipped to subsidize their child's education at home, or hire someone else to do so. This is a multifaceted problem covering both race and socio-economic standing. 

yep, because these parents are a product of the same thing.  i'm always trying to read up on the best ways to subsidize what children aren't getting at home for when I become a teacher.  there's only so much you can do though...

My Dad assigned us additional homework over the curriculum we were learning at school in addition to the HW assignments we were given through the school.
 
Essays and extra math homework from Dad.
 
Whoo. That just brought back memories LOL.
