Today I saw a reengagement program in north Toronto. The subject leader was tough as old boots and expected perfection and a 80 % achievement rate to pass.
More kids apply than can be accommodated. He has a wall of fame in his office. He takes on at risk kids who would struggle with straight academic work. The boys and girls were so engaged with their work. It showed me the power of the right staff and a structured programme. And what was the programme ?
