Rescuing Kids, One at a Time
That said, FCAR's co-founder and leader Gloria Pipkin received this note from a Monroe County parent recently [printed with the parent's permission].
Dear Gloria, I came across an article about FCAT and was very happy to see your name. Four years ago I wrote you about my son who for whatever reason could not pass the reading portion of the FCAT. He had done well at Sylvan and his grade average was 3.0. His last stab at at the FCAT was 299 and did not recieve a dipolma.
You suggested a school in Maine [NARS]. I sent the paperwork off and 3 weeks later my son had a diploma. He then enrolled in Community College and looked for a job. At the end of the 1st quarter he had an interview with _______who hired him and sent him to school. He now has a great job and is doing well. This story probably would have been alot different had it not been for your advice. Thank you for taking time for my son.
