If you believe the television, teenagers are all ignorant jerks who spend their time bullying hapless nerds and posting sexy selfies on the Twitter. I don't know any of those kids. The selfie part sounds familiar, but my students are bright, caring young adults who want the world to be filled with justice, equality, freedom, and impromptu dance parties. They are the kind of people who get up to cheer on their autistic classmate when he gets stuck in the middle of his speech on "Why Charmander is the Best Starter Pokemon." A classmate cries as he reads a poem about coming out to his parents, and they get up to give him a group hug. One girl delivers all of her presentations as closing arguments because she wants to be on the Supreme Court. These are good kids, you know? Our school's academy structure allows them to pursue their interests in law, the humanities, the performing arts, and technology. There are no sports and no cliques - just awesome young people pursuing their passions.
