I work at an inner city high school in a poor black neighborhood. The student population is 99% African American, 40% special ed, and has a 50% drop out rate. It was rated the worst school in the city three years ago and had to be shut down. It reopened into three smaller schools with new administrations and new programs, but with all the same problems.

I started out in September with no experience and no training. I was idealistic and excited, and I had no idea what I was in for.
