You have to have a short memory when working with disengaged young people but you can get them motivated. Divorce, violence, negative peer influence, alcoholism, and difficult home environments can all be at the root of student apathy. Guest Mike Hicks lights a path for helping students escape their apathy and negative stories to write a new future.
