WHAT YOU DO WILL PROBABLY NEVER BE RIGHTLY APPRECIATED
I read something recently that argues that schools don’t always fail students, that students sometime fail the school. What was being suggested is arguably, that no matter what lengths you go to provide support, resources, etc., to some children, they remain vehemently opposed.
Therefore, some students maintain a delinquent mind set on an on-going basis. It is suggested that such a mind set may not be appropriately dealt with in a school setting alone. In other words, in many cases it’s simply not your/school leaders fault. I agree that test score mandates should not be the sole determining factor when assessing student success outcomes, and that we/ school leaders may have it all wrong when it comes to delinquent youth in school settings.
Consequently, the question ultimately becomes what are some solutions for dealing with delinquent youth in school settings?
