“The better chance we can give kids to succeed, the more likely we are to see success. The anxiety children feel at constantly being tested, their fear of failure, punishment, and disgrace, severely reduces their ability both to perceive and to remember, and drives them away from the material being studied into strategies for fooling teachers into thinking they know what they really don’t know,” John Holt said.

All donations can be delivered to Pinnacle Family Chiropractic or at Blackfinn Ameripub on Tuesday, August 15 between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.
