Now, 25 years later in the year 2001 that
same man, though not so young, is again setting out on a cross-country
bicycle ride not seeking self, but searching for a commitment from minority
engineering and technical professionals to address the issue of math literacy
for our inner city students. The Los Angeles Unified School, district
like other urban districts, is faced with the crisis of a severe shortage
of teachers qualified and certified to teach math or science.
This ride is to build awareness in the minority engineering and technical
communities that we need their time, commitment and expertise to help
our schools and communities address this issue of the underachievement
of minority students in math and science. Be it through mentoring, tutoring,
teaching, or training, this ride is a call to arms to the large number
of professional engineers and scientists to assist in some way.
