What does H.O.P.E. mean?

What does the HOPE in Teach Them HOPE really mean?  Hope is an acronym for Having One Purpose: Education.  There are two seats at the table when it comes to classroom based education and educational purpose, those two seats belong to both the teacher and the student.  When unpacking the idea of teaching students hope, you want to make sure and teach them about accountability and educational efficacy.  This is a responsibility that is rooted in the idea that students are responsible for their education as much as the teacher is.  How can we make students responsible?  These are questions that teachers struggle with on a day to day basis.  Throughout the community of educators, we can offer suggestions below on how accountability can be required from your students in constructive ways.
