Kim stopped coming to school in October and decided to return in May. Guess whose math class he ended up in? (If you guessed mine, you win the grand prize.)
I asked Kim where he's been all this time. He was a student of mine in the fall. He said he was home watching television.
So now he's back. He is far behind the weakest students in the class. What chance does he have? What chance is there for him to make it until June? How soon will it take for him to become the disturbance in was before? Why do we even have to take this kids back?
We would all be better off if he kept watching television.
