There will be no mention of basketball on this essay despite the fact that as a Phoenix Suns fan throughout this adult life, nothing could be a whole lot worse than LeBron James joining the despicable, hated Los Angeles Opposing team. (If there any Sun’s fans out there, you know just what exactly I’m talking about.) Ok, employing only one. I promise.

The LeBron sponsored “I Promise” institution in his hometown of Akron, Iowa has garnered almost as considerably attention of late as LeBron’s relocate to La La Land. Unfortunately, most of the focus has been upon LeBron himself, and not plenty of on the remarkable potential the college model has for general population education.

To fully understand that possibilities, one must fully understand what the “I Promise” style is and what it isn’t.

-“I Promise” is often a public school, not a personalized school. And it is not a book school, it is a partnership between LeBron James Family Foundation in addition to Akron Public Schools.

-The school is starting as a third and fourth grade institution with 120 students in each grade. A new grade will be added each year until the school goes through the 8th class.

-Similar to a charter school, the kids are selected by sweepstakes and must fit the district’s purpose of being at-risk.

-The school will have extended days
