"As a past instructor for the WORKS curriculum, I have to say that it is one of the most comprehensive programs I have been a part of. Not only does it have the necessary elements for education it also incorporates the human importance that's necessary to reach the population it serves. The program has a very good flow from start to finish that makes it simple to teach and learn. In my opinion it should be a nation wide curriculum that's used to serve those that could benefit from it."
