Six Word Saturday



You can lead a kid to remediation . . .

. . . but you can't make them think.

I has part of the credit recovery push this weekend.

The students came with nothing - no paper, no pencil, no idea of what they need help with. They did have their phones and their earbuds - they were ready to party. Not so much work.

But they will be going to college - just ask.

And the result of pushing more kids to college is that most are not ready.

I think students are not as prepared as they used to be- partly due to the government lowering the bar so everyone feels good.....
