Thoughts on the video

Watching that video on those elementary students and the conditions that they have to deal with is a real eye opener. I know that the Lincoln Middle Schools are not that bad, but still. It has to be extremely difficult for a kid growing up in those conditions, plus the outside conditions, to stay focused in the educational part of their lives and succeed. To accomplish that is a great achievement. In addition, the video really shows me how much my school was on the opposite end of the spectrum. When I was going to school at younger ages we never had to deal with anything even close to that, so I never really thought of the fact that kids my same age were dealing with that. It really makes you realize how tough some kids have it and how easy others one do.
