Help struggling kids

To the Editor:

Regarding your story, “McHenry County school districts address social, emotional side of learning,” by Emily K. Coleman (May 6).

I read your story on how people are addressing the emotional side of learning in school to help kids keep learning in regular classes and not interfere with it. I was thinking this would be a great way to help kids who are struggling emotionally in classes and that hiring more staff would make it possible for more kids to get help.

This would be a great way to help all the kids who are struggling in classes and to give them the motivation and confidence to excel in their classes. Thank you for your time reading my letter.
