Visited the Los Angeles Big Picture school today. I was the only caucasian there! The student population is 92% Hispanic and 8% African American. An very interesting school as they are part of a large high school that has 2,300 students!! The BP school is totally separate but they share a cafeteria at different times. The large school has all sorts of problems with students and one day there were 100 police out the front of the school as students were rioting! The BP school is calm and has only had 2 fights in 4 years! I interviewed one othe students who was in a gang which was part of his family culture. After getting out of juvenile prison he came to this school and now wants to go on to Universtity. Amazing story.
