This is an insane time of year for parents, kids and teens in the City of Cleveland. Besides the Ohio Achievement tests and the general chaos imposed upon our community by the senseless Transformation Plan--most are also scrambling for ways to keep their kids occupied during the summer.
Sadly, even jobs traditionally available to teenagers like camp counselors and lifeguarding are now desperately sought out by adults.
And, the tragedy of it all?--I have encouraged many teens to seek lifeguard positions with the City of Cleveland Summer Pools and their response?
I don't know how to swim...I don't know how to ride a bike.
This is America?
For parents interested in the Youth Technology Academy, please follow this blog and stay tuned for participating sites listed for this summer.
