Coaches Guard Against Ga. Dropouts
#1 Nov 8, 2007
Finally, there is a program that personifies the African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." I am overjoyed to see the private sector step up to the plate to help the many at-risk young people in Georgia. CIS is a God-send that is finally taking hold!!! While I was a teacher, I always felt that there was not enough support personnel in the schools today. Presently retired, I still feel obligated to give service to others. I would be willing to dedicate a few more years of my life to this program. I am tired of seeing so many smart and talented young people (black males especially) "fall through the cracks" because not enough people are there to catch them before the world overpowers them. Thank God for CIS and its innovative idea of placing graduation coaches in the schools!
