The reason for this is not the kids only... But, the adults and leadership in place; inability to effectively guide the proper programs, systems and personnel. 

We as a collective city continues to guess and fund programs  that don't work. These programs are recycled best practices and out of date.

Then the problem becomes the municipality or funding sources; due to acquiring highly pedigreed agencies and individuals for help who have no real solutions. 

And, yes I have the answers. You won't know unless you ask.
