PENCIL is a non-profit in NYC that connects principals with leaders in business to improve public schools.   I love their charge of making public schools stronger.

PENCIL recently announced the expansion of its partnership program to Philadelphia with Philadelphia Academies Inc. (PAI).   Another great organization that helps kids in public schools succeed.   Two really impressive non-profits doing important work.  Good luck, guys!

Need to make your website more useful?  A great source for web usability info and methods is www.usability.gov.  That’s right, .gov.  I feel so patriotic.  Ahhh, what the hell, it’s president’s day.
