These Kids Are More Worthy

Every month we are asked to recommend two students to be "Students of the Month."  I try hard to find kids who are worthy, who have shown tremendous improvement, and are not usually recognized for anything scholastic.  I limit myself to the two and tell others they will have to wait until next term.

Well, this note just came in:

 If you have not done so, please recommend a couple of students from your classes.  You can recommend more if you have honor classes.

interesting...honor students are not the only ones who make progress and improvement.
I think students who struggle and make ANY FORM of progress and growth needs to be recognized too.

As a career special educator, it's the small successes that we celebrate with our kids. They may not be honor students, but most often they are persistent, hard working, honorable people.

This is just wrong on so many levels.
