The amount of money I’ve spent replacing umbrellas over the years that I’ve lent out and never got back makes me really wish I didn’t owe money on my taxes this year, but it’s a small price to make sure my students are dry.
I get wanting the best technology and programs for our students, but can we keep our kids dry? Please? Can we fix our ceilings to make sure our kids aren’t getting rained on in their classrooms? Can we at least get ponchos for our kids that walk to school so they aren’t soaked when they arrive and sick within days?
I get that this sounds like just asking more from a district that is already struggling to allocate finite funds, but it’s not meant to be. This is an appeal to “get back to the basics” as 90% of politicians say at some point in their careers. I think we as people that talk about kids and education all the time get distracted by the issues of they day and let our priorities float around without putting them in order.
Dry kids is at the top of my list, at least during the rainy season.
