Eighty five percent of my 18 children are below poverty level. Many live in federal and section 8 housing. The family education achievement is equally low. Racially, the group consists of 3 Hispanic children, 8 black children and 7 white children. Only 4 are being raised by 2 biological parents, the remainder are living with large mixed families, single parents and grandparents. Four of the 18 children have open abuse/neglect cases with Department of Human Resources. From a discipline standpoint, it's just difficult and necessitates continual attention and redirecting strategies. Our public school is under a school wide Title 1 program. We provide federally subsidized breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks to the children. Yet, both Alabama and our school system is economically strained. Therefore, we received no classroom money for our children this year. Our small city is also in dire economic conditions and was unable to provide any tax money to our schools or for these children.
