I Want You Here

By Carla Amurao

The Structured Alternative Confinement School (SAC) based in Spokane, WA is one of the programs highlighted in “Education Under Arrest.”

In this video, SAC instructor Kathy Tribby-Moore and two students, Kaitlyn and Natalia, discuss how student-teacher relationships keep youth returning to the school. The students also shed light on their transformation from feeling like “one of the kids in the background” to now feeling part of the SAC School community.

    We watched the Tavis Smiley video and found it most interesting.
    The smaller classroom seems to be the answer to keep students
    interested in school and learning. Please keep the public informed
    about changes and successes in schools. Kudos to the teachers
    and their successes. Thank you
