During Centurion’s mission, his doubts of such a supernatural occurrence peel away as he encounters the Apostles and other historic biblical characters and bears witness to the legendary storied events that followed the Resurrection.

Hope meets opportunity

You’re all set! “All of us here today are seeing the tipping point in the charter school movement in Los Angeles,” Broad said in talking about his gift, which raises his foundation’s commitment to L.A. public charter schools to $36 million. “Charter schools are accomplishing what many public schools are struggling to do. They are dramatically improving student achievement. “What’s happening is we’re really seeing a revolution from the bottom up. Public charter schools are doing a better job educating children than other public schools. It’s not only parents, (it’s) students, teachers – they’re all demanding change.” Broad was joined during the announcement by representatives from the Los Angeles Unified School District, former Mayor Richard Riordan – the alliance chairman – and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell. Robin Kramer, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s chief of staff, said Broad’s “return on the investment … will be found in thousands of changed lives of families and kids.” Billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad and South Los Angeles teenager Jesse Aguilar live at opposite extremes of the city, but their lives crossed Thursday at the intersection of hope and opportunity. Aguilar, 17, the son of Salvadoran immigrants, finds himself at the doorstep of the American dream thanks to Broad, whose education foundation funds the inner-city charter school that transformed the youngster into an honor student. “When I came to Gertz-Ressler High School two years ago I was a C student – today I’m an A student,” said Aguilar, “and when I graduate next year I’ll be the first in my family to attend a four-year college.” Aguilar shared his story at an auditorium at the Frank E. Baxter Education Center, just west of downtown, where on Thursday the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation announced it was injecting an additional $10 million in grants into the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools, creating another 13 new charter schools and giving other Jesse Aguilars a chance. last_img read more
