Falling down. Getting up.

Headless though he may be in the photo, this is the principal of the day at Ombudsman – Chicago South’s campus.  I recently had the pleasure of touring two of Ombudsman’s alternative schools in the Windy City.  It is still a thrill to feel the goose bumps and moist eyes when students who had given up in the traditional public school find success, safety, and family at an Ombudsman school.  It takes guts and determination to work with an education bureaucracy like Chicago Public Schools, and it is worth it for each of the students who have found their way to this alternate route to an education.
