Apr 15, 2009

James H. Johnson, Jr., CPC Fellow, William Rand Kenan, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Management, Sociology, and Public Policy, and Director of the Urban Investment Strategies Center in the Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise was quoted in a Triangle Business Journal article about improving academic performance of at-risk children.

An excerpt from the article:

In 1995, when the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise at UNC-Chapel Hill launched an initiative to boost school performance among children in some of Durham's most economically distressed neighborhoods, Union Baptist Church agreed to house the program. ..."We have to create an environment where kids get a consistent message about the importance of education," says James H. Johnson Jr., a professor at the Kenan-Flagler Business School who designed the Durham Scholars Program and the social-enterprise model for the new Union Independent School.
