“Hopeology”? Serious idea, goofy package

Since I came down pretty hard on Sen. Rosa Franklin a while back for wanting to sprinkle the term “kids at hope” throughout state law – thank goodness that bill died – I’ll offer reparations by giving some free pub to this $40 class at Kids at Hope University, whose graduates will receive a certificate in “hopeology.”

The ad:

All Caring Adults are invited to attend:
Module I Training – Certificate in Hopeology

4 hour introductory session – This training is an exciting experience exploring the science of hope, optimism and success and how it can be instilled in all children without exception. Exploring a cultural strategic framework and how an entire campus/organization/community can support the success of every child. Practical application of evidence based protocols in support of a child’s success is also discussed and operationalized. We answer the simple question “Why do some children succeed and others fail?”

Facilitated by Wally Endicott of Kids at Hope.
