On January 3rd, 2017, Higher Achievement’s Baltimore Executive Director, Traci Callender, was featured in the Baltimore Sun for this op-ed.
Sharing the incredible hope she has for the new generation, Traci writes, “The fifth through eighth graders in our midst are smarter, more sophisticated and more idealistic than I was at their age. I just wanted to get through a class trip without having to stop at every exhibit. Many of our 8th grade scholars will be voting during the 2020 election. Not long after that, today’s middle schoolers will occupy the Oval Office.”
