The North Baltimore School District is taking a new approach to helping some at-risk students. The Courier reports the “Brotherhood of Honorable Men” met for the first time last week. The 15 member group consists of fifth and sixth-grade boys deemed “at-risk” by teachers.
Two adult leaders meet with the group at lunch each week. They talk about things like honesty, integrity, and commitment.
The boys involved dress up on meeting days, wearing a tie and dress shoes. Powell Elementary School Principal Mark Lange says the students received several compliments about the way they dressed. He added that was a big boost to their self-esteem.
