Our school district is offering credit recovery summer school to students who are retaking a course to gain back the credits they lost by having failed the course during the year (math or English only). This year, nearly 19,300 students in grades 10-12 are enrolled in the summer session, which began July 6th and ends August 2nd.

Think about that number. Over NINETEEN THOUSAND students, not in grades K-12, but only in high school 10-12. Even if 10% are taking advanced placement classes, that leaves a breathtaking 17,000+ needing remedial classwork.

The future of our country, our world....
