I teach Special Education at an inner-city high school in Illinois. I work with grades 9-12 in co-taught classrooms as well as a resource room. All of the students at my school face great economic, social, and educational challenges. Almost all qualify for our free breakfast/lunch program. Many of their parents are immigrants who are working hard to support their kids and provide a better life for them. The gang culture is very big in the community and often spills into the school. It is a powerful draw to many young, impressionable students, and we often lose students to the lifestyle.
