You know those poor people, all a bunch of slackers without a thought to the damage they cause with all that consuming they do.

This program helped my sister in law and their school do a very good study on children with a variety of educational problems, use a pond and wooded area on school site along with a teacher mentor for the children. They recorded what the students said and did, as well as how the classroom teacher that had recommended each student, evaluated the program and the student, afterwards. The mentor also gave comments for each student. What an eye opener with value to all, from the students to the staff. The school is in a lower income, semi rural, small town area of Wisconsin.
We must see past our preconcieved ideas of what is possible to make a difference.
