Why do I teach an Enrichment Course to students who have been kicked out of their own schools for behavioral reasons?
Because for twenty years, no one thought my school needed an enrichment course.
"Those kids...can't learn....don't learn....won't learn."
Because my school is not funded enough to have the courses needed for a student to graduate.
"Those kids won't graduate anyway."
Because my students are some of the most brilliant I have ever worked with.
"Those kids are just criminals."
Because they represent only .01% of all students in my district.
"Those kids don't matter. Why waste resources on them?"
Because their home schools don't really want them back.
"Those kids? What kids?"
I made this for my team at the beginning of the school year. Seems appropriate for this Why:
