plagued with violence, crime, poverty,hunger, lack of funds and
in the comfort of my suburbian lifestyle, my heart goes out to kids
fathers have lost their jobs, whose mothers are alchoholics, whose
have died from suicides. We then expect those kids to score well on
not bring the school's averages down, when they can barely get out of
the morning to make it to school. We have become an educational elitest
with false parameters (did YOU take SAT prep course growing up? I know I
didn't...there was no such thing). Learning for learning sake, and the
learning has been replaced with grades, SAT scores, getting into
schools (and by the way, has anyone done a study to show LONG these
STAY at the school once they get in?). Ask a highschool student what
to do in the future, and they usually say "MAKE MONEY".....(no one wants
make a difference or change the world anymore)....
And why shouldn't they say that? They can't name a social worker,
minister, child care worker, elder care person, hospice worker that they
admire,,,but they sure can name Bill Gates.
