Are the growing number of absentee parents and uneducated parents the reasons most children in urban schools do not value education?

    I agree with you Express. As I mentor kids, I hear a lot of difficult things. I try to encourage them to stay the course as least until high school graduation. I feel so frustrated and useless when I try to walk kids through kids through trauma.

    I have a student whose mother is 13 years older than she is. Mom should have waited. What can she tell her daughter?

    My students and I read the news about the 17 year old who shot the 13 month old in the head. His mom and aunt threw the gun in a lake to try to get rid of evidence. Then mm and aunt were arrested. They both had a prior record

    At one time grandparents tried to fill in the gap. After several generations, it seems the grandparents are just as bad as the parent. Thanks Dashing!

    What is said is to know the future for these kids. Some escape but most are involved in crime, violence, and or poverty.
