"It's all about the kids"

An area parent forwarded information to me about a website and organization in Chicago that is working hard to change Chicago public schools.

Also included was a Chicago parent's comment. When she hears "It's all about the kids," she said, "I've learned to start turning over rocks whenever I hear that phrase."

Maybe there should have been an exclamation point at the end of her sentence.

Just last week I watched The Freedom Writers again. It's based on a true story about a first-year teacher, Erin Gruwell, in Long Beach, California.

Parents need to find these teachers in their school systems and make certain to support them! They are out there.
