Warmest regards, Mama Nkechi - Principal - RALC


The success of Roots is demonstrated in several

ways. In 1999, the community asked Dr. Thompson to open another Roots as a charter school. Therefore, Roots Public Charter School was born as a protégé of the Roots Activity Learning Center. RALC alumni have successfully graduated from many of the finest area high schools, historically black colleges and universities, as well as from Harvard, Duke, Princeton, etc. RALC teachers and staff have received National teacher and principal of the year honors, and former students have achieved high on standardized tests and placed well in Spelling Bees and other academic competitions.

BOOKER T. WASHINGTON

On April 5th we commemorate the birthday of Booker Taliaferro Washington, born into slavery in 1856. Washington is most noted for the philosophy of "self-improvement" and for building one of the greatest Black institutions in the world - Tuskegee Institute. Tuskegee Institute became famous as a model of vocational education. Washington died in his home at Tuskegee Institute in November 1915.
