Some offerings turned up by Google Alerts, readers, and other sources, all of which are worth clicking:

- A nice write-up of the extremely important work that SOS Crown Heights is doing to stop violence in our community on the NYT blog CityRoom.

- The Journal covers the unveiling of P-Tech (formerly Paul Robeson High School), in which the DOE will partner with IBM to offer a six-year program to high school students that will lead to an associate's degree in computer science and a fast-track to an IBM job.

- The show "To Gather" opens at Five Myles Gallery on Saturday (they also were the subjects of a good recent article from Patch). From their website:
