You sit down beside him, hold his hand, and with tears in your eyes, you teach the other 10 students….

We can do this. We can change the course we are on.  We need solid commitment to an 11:1 student-teacher ratio in all k-5 classes over 50% low income…  And we need to let teachers teach…..

This is not beyond our capacity…  WE are Americans. WE accomplish great things. WE can do this.
