Put simply, poor children in metro Atlanta aren’t moving up the economic ladder. That was the case in 2013, and that remained the case in 2018, according to studies released by an affiliate of Harvard University.
Once they were finished, the citizen planners who on Saturday offered their ideas about how to promote housing development in Atlanta relied heavily on many of the same tools used around the nation for more than 30 years – government incentives to entice the free market to meet a public need for housing at all prices.
When David A. Thomas was 10 years old, his ambition was to attend Morehouse College.
On Sunday, the board of trustees of Atlanta-based Morehouse College named Thomas the 12th president of the prestigious historically-black institution.
Thomas comes with a 30-year academic background working for Ivy League institutions. He currently is the H. Naylor Fitzhugh Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, a position he’s held since January.
