All semester, my repeater kids have been told that if they met these certain goals (few absences, no fights, etc.) they would be moved up to high school in the spring semester. This has been the carrot in front of the cart for the last four months. We dangle it constantly.
Yesterday, I found out that they aren't going to get to go, due to budget cuts at the high school. So everything that they have been working for is for nothing, as far as they are going to be concerned.
I am sure I will have an easy time gaining their trust back after this one. ¶ 4:31 AM
