All Grown Up
At the turn of the 21st century, St. Louis civic leaders teamed up on a project to forge a better future for the children at Jefferson School in the heart of the inner city. Now those kids are all grown up. Former student Evita Caldwell spent more than a year tracking down classmates to learn whether the well-intentioned effort succeeded. Here is her report.
Evita Caldwell’s work was underwritten by donations from more than 75 St. Louisans and others interested in education policy. It is sponsored by the Press Club of Metropolitan St. Louis.
