State’s “Most Dangerous Criminal” Gets 65 Years (He is 22 years old with a reported 4 murders under his belt.) He is 22-year-old Zachery Cody Franklin—aka Public Enemy #1.
Thanks to the teachers from Hillhouse for providing this real-life lesson about the consequences of bad choices on the streets. This type of lesson should start in the 7th grade when many of our students start being easily influenced by the bad elements in our midst. Of course, when those elements are in the home it is that much harder for schools to combat them. We sincerely hope that the 15 students in the Hillhouse High School after-school “Pathways To College” program will share what they have learned with others. An integral part of high school education should be about effectively and successfully navigating the environment in which students live.
Hillhouse High School teachers Jack Paulishen and Marvin Towler, great kudos to you. Please make more such education field trips, not only for those in the "Pathways to College" program, but for all those who need these lessons. This is the type of lesson the students cannot find in a book or on the CAPT or CMT tests. Thanks to Paul Bass for bringing this information to the community. Paul, do you know where Franklin attended high school? http://www.newhavenindependent.org/index.php/archives/entry/states_...
