Hi, Dave. I complete agree with you. Providing a positive path is essential. At our school, we have the "Connections Program." It is after school two days a week. Staff members network with kids, help with homework, and provide positive experiences for kids who are at risk. Unfortunately, despite all our efforts, we have to have a realistic approach to the barriers our students encounter and help them make positive chocies in overcoming those barriers. ~Mary
