Young Men Doing Right Wronged By Chicago Violence

Tim King, Founder of Urban Prep Academies in Chicago, joined Dan & Amy to look beyond the crime statistics in Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods, and to discuss how his academies are educating young black men to be successful in their chosen pursuits. While Urban Prep has a 100% college acceptance rate for their graduates, they are not immune to the violence - two students were shot and killed last month. King tells Proft & Jacobson, “There needs to be a more comprehensive approach. We need a significant and serious investment in schools and public education.”
