for Gods sake. the tragedy in Connecticutt affected my students. they are studying child development. they care about children, they know that may some day be teachers. they are stressed. i had them making tiny little fabric hearts, stuffed with the list of names of the dear babies killed in that tragedy. the plan was to box up a few hundred of them and send them, along with heartfelt notes, to Sandy Hook. Today we get an email from district “our policy is not to make any contact or offers of support” Really? Really? why would we let our students offer loving care to families who are hurting. why let children offer stuffed hearts to children? for gods sake. what has happened to education?
