Survey Says?

While being forced by New York City to administer the time consuming 2010 NYC School Survey to her students in class, Miss Eyre of NYC Educator was "equal parts heartened and disheartened" by her students' responses.

But she did have trouble stomaching one common response to the survey.

What was saddest to me was how few students said they felt comfortable sharing either academic or personal struggles with an adult in our school. I really want kids to feel comfortable talking to me, and I try to show, as often as possible, that if they're honest and open with me, I can meet them halfway.
