Itoco Gracia: the Intrepid Principal of Cherryland Elementary

At the United States justice forum in San Jose California this year I had the oppertunity to see Itoco Garcia speak at the Rap Academy PMA. Garcia came from  bi-ricaial parents and spent time in the highlands of Scotland when he was a youngster. Landing in 3rd grade in the United States, unable to read at the "third grade level" but was able to knit, sew, speak a few languages and do advanced math he realized that on some levels the United States public school system has major issues. Some child developement experts say that a childs abliity to form a working narative from the writen word in negligable.
