It's Academics, Stupid! If You Care Enough. The Editor Reflects.
Erb, Tom
Middle School Journal, v27 n1 p2 Sep 1995
Effective youth services are those operated by individuals who care about those they serve, and middle schools are no exception. Developing caring climates, promoting positive self-esteem, and fostering cognitive growth are factors of concern for middle school educators, but academic development remains the primary focus. In providing challenging academic environments, educators must also maintain high expectations, respect differences, and encourage various intelligences. (LBT)
