+Ele Ekblad Whatever you have been told you are in a better or equal position to get financial aid from the government than any one. There are privately funded financial aid programs that target specific groups but all the government funded ones are needs (and ability) based. Back in the day I was eligible for a scholarship through the Teamsters, my dad was a union member.

Hi Ms. Patterson, I totally sympathize with you and agree. There is no motivation that can get a child to show up in school and do their work or homework. The kids behavior's are uncontrollable nowadays and to top it of, they are more than the usual number of students in a classroom per teacher. Consequently, teachers  can not implement the curriculum without leaving students behind. Here is my E-mail address: rocioespitia7@gmail.com
