Two signs of the times
While tweeting and blogging about today’s fundraising event for the Save Our Schools March and National Call To Action, I spotted this on Mike Klonsky’s blog:
How depressing is that? Fortunately, I’ve spent all day looking at another sign of the times: the rising progress thermometer over at http://www.saveourschoolsmarch.org
When little kids miss out on storytime and gym because their teachers are busy proctoring tests; when schools are so underfunded that they’re laying off teachers and shortening their school year, and our political and opinion “leaders” taunt that it’s high time they sacrificed even more; when the White House talks about ending school bullying yet promote bully-like “reforms” for some of the neediest schools in our educational system, it’s time to march. Join me in supporting this important cause!
