Please note that the grant from Kellogg was for a project designed not only to set up a city-wide News Bureau for Miami’s young people, including some in Miami’s most blighted schools. The proposal went further: It was designed to exam how effective journalism could be as a test prep tool for standardized tests, particularly those used under “No Child Left Behind” guidelines. If journalism could be shown to be effective in this context, one could make a powerful argument for weaving it more deeply into the curriculum across the board.
