A host of arguments can be made to explain the explosive growth in America’s prison population, half of which is African-American. Those arguments range from the nation’s War on Drugs to a twisted subculture within the African-American community that views a prison sentence almost as a rite of passage for young Black males.

Watch. Practice. Learn almost anything for free. With over 3,000 videos on everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and hundreds of skills to practice, we're on a mission to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace.

Khan Academy: With over 2600 videos, Khan Academy covers math and science for K-12. Each video is about ten minutes long and learning is self-paced. It a great homeschool supplementation and reinforcement tool for students to hear and/or see an explanation put another way, driving concepts home with several learning opportunities, and they even have test preparation aids.
I am not kidding, THIS IS THE VERY (period) BEST (period) WEBSITE (period) for learning ANYthing. Ur kid needs this!! KhanAcademy the future of education
Khan Academy - videos for science and math. The students use technology of all kinds to work on, create, and submit class work, as well as learn and study. The teachers are opened to leaving the students to work, and expect the students to be on task. This may be leaning more towards the Montessori type schooling, and I love it! Couldn't be more of a harbor for creative and critical thinking, and problem solving!
The Khan Academy's mission is to provide a free world-class education for anyone anywhere. They provide more than 3,000 video lessons in math, science, history and other subjects starting at 3rd grade level. The real magic to the Khan Academy is that kids (and adults) can learn at their own pace, which means they can review subjects they’re struggling with or start learning geometry a few years early if they’re the smartest kid in the class.

A Surge in Learning the Language of the Internet: No shock here, but it's just a matter of time that it's common to make code based language jokes for the layman.

The blooming interest in programming is part of a national trend of more people moving toward technical fields. According to the Computing Research Association, the number of students who enrolled in computer science degree programs rose 10 percent in 2010, the latest year for which figures are available.
