Education Week reports on how minority students have taken advantage of their high-schools' partnerships with colleges. A two-story package reveals that the ties between colleges and K-12 schools bring positive influence in the lives of students most of whom are at the same time facing family and economic problems. Most students in these high-schools aspire to get college education, after they graduate. The report features two specific examples of such successful partnerships - between Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem and Ithaca College in upstate New York, and between Syracuse University and High School for Leadership and Public Service in the so-called Spanish Harlem in Manhattan.
