Jezebel blog interviews Amanada Rosman of the Boggs Educational Center.

Excerpt:

Amanda Rosman, 33, is a single mom living in Detroit with her 5-year-old son Ajani. She’s taught in the Detroit Public Schools, a Catholic school and a charter school, but her main project now is starting a revolutionary elementary school.

Along with four others, Amanda-who has a BA from Cornell, a master’s in education from the University of Michigan, and a law degree from Wayne State University-is working on opening the Boggs Educational Center, which the founders hope will be open by the 2011-2012 school year. I spoke with Amanda by phone while she was on her way back to Detroit from a camping trip in the Pacific Northwest with her son about the challenges of teaching in the inner city, how education can be fixed, and urban gardening.
