Editorial: JP’s great kids

Our regular “JP Kids” special section this spring once again shows the creativity of local youths and the grown-ups who support them all around the neighborhood.

At the Mission Hill K-8 in central JP, the kids are teaching us about ancient Nubia.

At the British School in Jamaica Hills, the kids competed in a prestigious “history bee.”

Tony Williams, JP’s great dancer and teacher, is expanding his Amory Street program to include youth ballet.

In Jackson Square’s Bromley-Heath, kids joined a creative “rhyme mob” to ward off some nasty weather and build language skills.

Too often we hear only of the challenges facing Boston’s youths in such areas as school reform or street crime. Worse still, we often don’t hear about Boston’s youths at all. Congratulations to these young people for their efforts and to the parents, guardians, caregivers and teachers providing them with such great opportunities.
