"Every single child wants to be successful. The problem is, if they can't be successful at being successful, they'll be successful at screwing up. Our job as educators is to change the latter to the former."    

- from the The Missing Link by Steve Heisler

Real Student Choice

“On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero,” or so writes Chuck Palahniuk in his novel Fight Club.

It similarly can be said that on a long enough timeline everyone's chance for success climbs to 100%. The key is to know how to keep on climbing otherwise, on that same timeline, it drops to zero.

Our students make this choice everyday. In which direction are we helping them go?  That choice in ours, every day.
