What can a teacher do to turn around the lives of young people who are wallowing deep in poverty, abuse, drugs, alcohol, indifference, and a life of crime?
In If This Child Were Mine, we see a rare educator whose dedication to change the lives of her students extends beyond the interactions only allowed by the classroom.
For this special educator, not even the curbing of the practice of in loco parentis, will stop her to get out of her way to reach out to the needs of her students – her children – employing tested or untried ideas and practices to try to save these children from certain doom.
