Weighing heavily on me over the past few months...
Two instances total, that stand out. But there are more.
And without throwing any one person under the bus, I will try and give details.
First a meeting with educators and parents. The parents being given information for the upcoming year.
Educator: "does anyone have questions?"
Random parent: "so, are we supposed to be reading to them? Like uh daily?"
I sat there, with eyes as large as saucers. And panned the room for other saucer eyed parents. I did not see any.
I was walking through the library, when I see a poster. On the poster is an artists rendering of a pancake, with a bacon mouth, a strawberry nose, and 2 eggs for eyes. It reads...and forgive me for not recalling the pharseology exactly...
"There is a reason breakfast is always smiling, feed your children"....
