It’s A Little More Special Here

It’s Special

I know it’s special where you are, but until you experience it here, you probably wouldn’t have a complete understanding why it’s just a little more special here.  You see when the students where I teach high school science graduate, it’s a little more special than you’re run of the mill high school graduation. Where I teach, the effects of poverty are on full display.  Dangerous streets, serious dysfunction at home, crowded conditions, English a second language, all make for a severe uphill climb to simply graduate high school. Heck, somewhere around 80% of our parents haven’t graduated from high school.  Thinks about it, 80%.
