Kids who are struggling feel like they are constantly running up hill while the other kids are on an easy downward slope.   

In this day and age of Student Growth Percentiles, Common Core and PARCC testing what is the one thing that the struggling kids need above all?

They need people to be patient with them, to ease up on all of the pressure.

Sometimes they get burned out with it all.

Turn down the heat this weekend.

Take your kid out for an ice cream cone.
