Our Children Are Worth Saving
by Dorothy Robinson
Author Dorothy Robinson has implemented a system that her mother had taught and subsequently used to raise her own children. It was based on unbendable rules, expectations, and rewards for doing well. Our Children Are Worth Saving is an important book, proving that nobody wants to be punished, but everyone wants to be rewarded. Robinson began applying this system every time she taught a different class and used these methodologies to set up a successful in-school suspension program. The results of that program were amazing, seeing how eager students were to attend Robinsons classes due to her teaching methods. She firmly believes no child should receive less education due to socio-economic conditions.
