The Rochester (New York) City School District has had its share of bad news recently, mainly highlighting poor student performance. I won’t sugar coat the fact that Rochester has one of the highest rates of child poverty in the nation, which undoubtedly affects school performance. Kids can’t learn under stressful circumstances.
However, as outlined in this article published in the September 29, 2014 edition of the Democrat & Chronicle, one district school that serves an impoverished section of the city is bucking the trend.
There is hope for our city’s children!
