I was contemplating how my son’s old school wasnt all bad. However, it was lacking so much that my son didnt feel safe. He acted out in many ways; when his actions started to harm him I had no other choice but to take action. Of course his school’s teachers and councelors met with me and spoke to me. They however did not speak to each other soI was getting help from different people but it wasnt concerted.
“It takes a village…”, we all know the rest. It has been used so much that it has lost its message. It takes a homgenous village, a village where everyone is thinking the same and has the same agenda, and feels the passion for your child that you fel for your child.
I’m so glad that when I needed a village I was able to call upon Sankofa International Academy. In the beginninghe was resistant but when you have been disappointed you tend to test all new experiences. Ms Ollie and Ms Pam and Ms Eulene were all very patient and stern at the same time. Obviously love conquered all. Theres still a long road ahead but its welcomed.
