Can you teach failure?
(DISD.org)- Dallas ISDs newest magnet school-Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy at B.F. Darrell-will open to students in grades six through nine in August 2011. Two years in the planning, the school will offer a small, focused learning environment where young men are prepared for leadership roles in school, the community, and society.
Weve experienced the value of single gender education through the Irma Lerma Rangel Young Womens Leadership School, which has consistently been one of Dallas ISDs top performing schools since opening in 2004, Superintendent of Schools Michael Hinojosa said. We have the same expectations for the all-male leadership academy.
The curriculum at Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy at B.F. Darrell will include pre-AP and AP classes, foreign languages, robotics, accelerated math and science, journalism, writing, and public speaking. The young men will be required to complete a technology-based project and a community service project each year.
Students also must participate in two extracurricular activities, which include debate and a variety of arts programs. Sports such as rowing, lacross, tennis, and physical conditioning also will be part of the academy experience.
The school will operate on a three-semester year. An additional grade level will be added each year until students are served through grade 12.

Department if Education.
I wonder if they’ll offer Teleprompter 101?
this is doomed to failure within a couple of years... what timing!!!
Saturated wit Communist immersion policies an Nazi tactics.
That might be the only class they’d be able to teach properly.
Schoooling of future commmmiessaaaars!!!
Wonder how long this BS will last? Contrary to the opinion of the “press” this is still Texas where I live. Not yet, Mugabee’s Zimbabwe.
DISD is a tremendous joke.
Most Folks around here send their kids to charter schools of private schools
Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy......LOL This is a joke right?? That’s like having a Bwarney Frank speach therapy center......
Obama is a disease that must be cured..... Palin is the cure.
Please not in Dallas. This would be so much more appropriate in Chicago. Or Havana.
post of the day ... I’d forgotten about those morons.
Leadership? What in the heck does Baraq Obama know about leadership?
The Academy of Community Organization
Hey this is DISD we are talking about.
Like many (most) urban districts it’s all about the graft. And of course it’s totally controlled by leftists so I’m not surprised.
BTW here’s the ethnic data for students in DISD:
African American 29.6%
White 8,004 5.0%
Native American 0.2%
Asian/Pacific Islander 0.9%
So the only surprise is that it’s not named for some hispanic leftist instead of a black leftist.
