On Indy school's wall: 'College Or Die'
February 18, 2013 (INDIANAPOLIS) (WLS) -- A school in Indianapolis is not taking no for an answer.
Charles Tindley Accelerated School expects to get every student into college.
On the school wall, the words "College Or Die" written in big capital letters.
The words may seem a little harsh for some, but school administrators say it's all about motivation.
Most of the students at the school live at or below the poverty line, so the school's chancellor calls higher education the difference between opportunity and oppression.
