"Getting Your Money's Worth" with Judith West
- CEO/Principal, John V. Lindsay Wildcat Academy Charter School
The word "wildcat" is a description of someone who drills, where others have failed, with the expectation of striking it RICH. That's what Ron Tabano, founder/principal of Wildcat Academy Charter School, does. But his team strikes it RICH with high risk, urban teens. Kids who are suspended from traditional school, truants, -- or even already in the criminal justice system -- graduate and go on to college or have a job. Required throughout the curriculum is work experience. For the record, character development is always front and center. Learn how Wildcat's staff does the magic on Getting Your Money's Worth with Judith West.
