And the children shall lead us…

Hyde-Bronx Exterior

I often tell colleagues and friends, “If you’re ever having a bad day, just go spend an hour or so with the kids at one of Hyde’s public charter elementary schools.”  You’ll leave with a 2-Fer: a smile and an enhanced sense of purpose.

Last week, during a meeting of Hyde’s Board of Governors in New York, we took a break from the boardroom, boarded a bus for Hunt’s Point, South Bronx, and did exactly that.

Rather than take my word for it, check out this video and see/hear for yourself.

After 40 years of trying to teach this Hyde 5 Word stuff, I think I just may have stumbled on to the best approach yet!
