No Child Left Behind? These Kids Just Want to Come in From Cold -

Dear Rodney and Terry,

As a public school teacher for the past 19 years, I want to commend you on taking the risk of speaking out on your plight at your school. I would further encourage you to positively spin your frustration by becoming a teacher yourself. Only those who are passionate about education continue to fight for education. Your passion for your own education is obvious. You dedication in continuing to attend classes despite obstacles, your desire to publicize your plight definitely point to this. I encourage you to find a way to pass that on to future generations. Hang in there, perservere through college. You can continue to make a difference. You have a great head start over most of your peers.
