This is the first story in a three-part series about Brooklyn Generation School and New York City’s new school-turnaround program. As Elodie Oriental saw it, the path from one of New York City’s weakest high schools to the Ivy League ran right through this moment, standing onstage facing the crowd at a citywide poetry competition. That’s why the strong-willed 15-year-old had added memorizing 19th-century poetry to her grinding schedule of homework, family obligations, and as many free college-prep programs for low-income students as she could get into. For Elodie, it was all to ensure that she could eventually propel herself far from Canarsie, Brooklyn, where she lived, and on to better things: law school for her, medical school for her twin sister, Ismaelle. They were dealing with an upheaval at home: Their mother, who had immigrated from Haiti, died just before the start of the school year, leaving the girls to move in with their father, a busy taxi driver. And their small high school, Brooklyn Generation School, was by some measures among the city’s worst, though the girls and many classmates leaned on it more than ever. Under the stage lights’ glow that night in February, Elodie looked out on her teenage competitors: girls from a Catholic school on Staten Island, a public performing-arts school in Manhattan, and a $21,000-per-year Jewish school on Long Island.

(John Woike / Hartford Courant) UConn's second and final... "It's a blessing to be in the NFL," Davis said by phone shortly after he was selected. I just wanted an opportunity to prove myself and I have that but regardless of where you're picked you're going to have to come in and work," Davis said. "I'm just glad the Giants gave me an opportunity. Huskies defensive lineman B. J. McBryde, who garnered a lot of attention at UConn's Pro Day in March, was not selected but he sounded like he went No. 1 after signing a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. "They actually called me during the seventh [and final] round with another handful of teams," McBryde said.
King, the legendary blues musician, died Thursday after spending much of the month in hospice care. , in 1925, King began his life on a plantation, where he was born the son of a sharecropper. Speaking to Fresh Air's Terry Gross in 1996, King remembered an early life without telephones, electricity or any outside opportunities. "A lot of the people, including myself in the early years, just thought this was it, you raise your families and you get old, you die, your families take over, kids, what have you," King said. Two years later, King made his first recording, and he's been playing the blues, touring and recording ever since. No matter how many times he performed, King admitted to feeling a rush of nerves whenever he stepped on stage. "I developed in my head that I'm never any better than my last concert or the last time I played, so it's like an audition each time," he said. You're concerned about the people — like meeting your in-laws for the first time. Believe it or not, the people [who] lived on the plantation felt like that this was really home, most of them, and we were being taken care [of] because the boss of the plantation usually was like your lawyer, your judge, your father, your mom. People lived on plantations felt, believe it or not, secure to be there.
