Bruce Randolph Recognized in State of the Union

If you haven’t already, make sure to check out the following this video of President Obama’s State of the Union. In it he recognizes the incredible progress made by Bruce Randolph School here in Denver. Bruce Randolph has been, and still is, one of Project VOYCE’s main partners. Congratulations to everyone who had a hand in this improvement, and especially to the many Bruce Randolph students who have worked with Project VOYCE over the years.

“You see, we know what’s possible for our children when reform isn’t just a top-down mandate, but the work of local teachers and principals; school boards and communities.

Take a school like Bruce Randolph in Denver. Three years ago, it was rated one of the worst schools in Colorado; located on turf between two rival gangs. But last May, 97% of the seniors received their diploma. Most will be the first in their family to go to college.”
