2 Highschoolers, 2 Different Worlds

We always talk about how different LA is just miles and even blocks away from each other. A student from Jefferson High School, a little over 10 blocks away from our housing site and La Canada High School, about 20 miles north of downtown and on the outskirts of the city limits are compared. This LA Times article is a good eye-opener and maybe can even be used as an example for a debrief to talk about the struggles teen face in the surrounding neighborhood.
