What Educational Crisis?

Alternate Post Title: Hope

My daughters came home from kindergarten today, even more excited than usual to tell me about everything they had learned in school. I was expecting to hear something exciting about insects, dinosaurs, or planets, or to see some cool new arts and crafts projects.

What I was not expecting to see in my kitchen just then was both my girls standing up straight, with their hands over their hearts, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

And, oh yeah, the other day they brought home special Constitution Day crowns they had made. What's the over/under on the number of schools in the Boston Public School System that celebrated Constitution Day this past week?

Color me proud.
