Pulitzer Prize 2014 winners announced for photography

The Lacy Atkins site, if one can excuse the “selfie” on the main page, includes various interesting photo series, including the one about the Oakland charter school. It features some motivated, engaged people. Unfortunately, most of the pictures portray very reluctant or bewildered young men. One appears to give up entirely. The learning experience seems reduced to passing unappetizing multiple choice proficiency exams. The school could probably use a music and choir director prior to a math drill sergeant. The enrollment selection process and voluntary nature may assure some improvement in scores or graduation rates, but that is a matter that photography does not convey very well, and which statistics can cloud too.
