Choral sound verses encouragement and personal development in childrens choirs: the role of the teacher

When starting an informal choir in a school, to what extent is it a teacher’s role to include and encourage children that are vocally weak to participate? How does one go about creating a solid choir in terms of sound, without discouraging these children from taking part?

I sort of made a career out of taking singers who are vocally "weak" and turning them into seasoned choristers. This is both at the Middle School Level, with a church choir, and with a community choir. Encourage ALL singer to participate. Often what a "weak" singer needs to become a "strong" singer is the support of other singers.
