Pushouts & Dropouts in Philadelphia Schools. (response)

Today I was able to sit down and watch this video. To say I was surprised was an understatement. First off, I want to thank Lizzie for sharing this video with us. I feel like these young adults are right. We need to be the adults to help them. As someone studying to be a reading specialist I find that we are responsible for helping these young adults with whatever they need, we need to be the advocate for them.  There is no reason that a high school student should be reading on a 3rd grade level. These young adults want to turn their lives around and we should help them. This video opened my eyes to many problems, but also many solutions to things in the future when I have my own classroom.
