The first day of school should be a day of meeting new teachers and catching up with friends. Sadly enough, some students were happy to have a safe haven to return to, so they could let a caring adult know they had nowhere to live and had borrowed shoes in order to attend school.
Many young men came to school with their heads down because their self esteem seemed to be nonexistent.
Macon/Bibb, we can do better for our children. Please, volunteer to become a mentor and help ease the pain.
