189. The John Dewey Academy

The John Dewey Academy uses peer pressure marketed as “Positive Peer Culture” to handle at-risk teenagers. If the term covers positive teacher student relationship is not to say but at least two cases involving a Spanish teacher and the manager of the school are mentioned in the media.

If those relationships were forced it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
