Seashore quoted in article about St. Paul 'Promise Neighborhood'

Karen SeashoreKaren Seashore, professor in the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development was quoted in the Pioneer Press article "City leaders apply for federal grant to create a 'Promise Neighborhood' in St. Paul."

"St. Paul civic, community, educational and political leaders have embarked on a long-term plan to turn around hard-knocks portions of the Frogtown and Summit-University neighborhoods...Approaches like Promise Neighborhood run counter to an educational approach in recent decades that views schools as safe havens and the community as something to keep at a distance," said Karen Seashore, a professor in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota.
