A Pennsylvania high school has recently begun experimenting with separating students by race and gender to improve academic performance.

Described as a mentoring program to help Black students improve their grades, the program has alternately drawn criticism by many who are reminded of the painful era of segregation. McCaskey East High School teacher Angela Tilgham, who is Black, proposed the idea stating that grouping Black students with a positive role model can improve their academic achievement and self-esteem.

In this installment of “On The Corner,” we took to the streets of Harlem to see how people felt about this controversial issue.
