What to do with the kid who doesn't do anything? That's the question of the month.
We've met with his mother and agreed he should attend homework club three days a week. Well, he didn't agree, but the adults did. There were days he showed up, usually because the counselor or another teacher waited for him at his locker and escorted him personally. We quickly came to realize...you can lead Hank to homework club, but you can't make him do homework.
His mother says he stubborn. She's right. He's apparently been this way for most of his school career.
I see a kid who is very intelligent, but not interested in what we teachers are selling. The adults in the picture are puzzled and unsure how to solve the problem.
I just hope we figure it out before he decides to drop out of school.
