Cleveland's Investment Schools: Students will hear more 'positive narration'

There will be less please and thank you at Anton Grdina Elementary School this fall.

Students will receive less praise for doing basic tasks and teachers will have less tolerance for students who do not follow instructions quickly.

On the face of it, this  sounds cold and like a potential disaster for a school in one of Cleveland's roughest neighborhoods. The building is located just off Kinsman Avenue and neighbored by two public housing developments.
