Second Chances…

image

Many of my children come from homes without structure…Some, may even come from neglect and chaos…I have always believed children are precious and innocent…Their hearts are filled with love…Yet, because of circumstance, some can disturbed and filled with such anger….
Much of my day is teaching my children  how to operate safely enabling, empowering and inspiring….

In addition, a lack of funds in Public Education and Title I schools, our resources are greatly lacking, however expectations are quite challenging, More now than ever, we must teach a smaller class sizes to be able to provide more one on one help for our children from these unstructured homes  ….How the benefit of a well trained paraprofessional for the most challenged child, who may demand more of my needed time, would provide the much needed support for these children…

Moreover, our school does having a guidance counselor however, is tied up with RTI data and coordinating meetings….Because of lack of funds, those children who would benefit greatly from a strong guidance counseling program, do not receive this support….They do fall through the cracks….

Our school is not able to provide many of our children their chance…We are a family who deserves a chance to become the best!!!

  1. Yes, I agree totally dear Janis. I was saddened to watch an Upworthy video on falling USA Education Budgets and misconceptions thereof. In these terms, the USA is failing its children, especially it’s youngest.
    It doesn’t need me to tell you that your country is storing up problems for the future, that will cost much more to rectify, in the end. Both in fiscal and humanitarian terms.
    Very short sighted, of course. As is the policy of using private contractors to test, and report on, young children. I see that as using children as commodities, to be used or discarded. So sad.
    But, and for me there has to be a but, the sooner parents and other concerned people are fully aware of what is happening, the sooner we can return to real values of human ‘conditioning’ i.e. Love, Compassion etc. etc.
    Lots of love, & thanks.

    1. Dearest Andrew…Thank you for your insights!Always so appreciated…
      Yes we are failing our children…especially those that rely on a Public Education…Children in poverty…who have the same potential, but because of cuts and such unrealistic demands, will not receive the education our free society once believed…
