Did anyone watch Frontline's Dropout Nation

Recommended Posts

I thought, after going to my Dominican Republic Mission Trip that we have it so good here (in the US) in comparison. We do! We have schools available to all, etc. etc,


But after watching last night, I realize my head has STILL been in the clouds. Some Kids are dealing with insurmountable challenges. On top of it, they were never taught the skills of self control and compassion.


I was inspired by the teacher's live for at risk kids. At the same time, I find it sad that they cannot teach them responsibility b/c they would lose the student. The alternative is most likely a life of crime.


I really wish our society would work to tackle the underlying problems at home instead of punishing schools for being "unsuccessful" with them.
