I found this FULL page advertisement in my local newspaper.
Many of you know that from time to time I enjoy making fun of my (almost) hometown Boulder Colorado. Technically I live in a smaller and mellower town just east of Boulder so I really shouldn’t mouth off too much for fear that this young man might come looking for me.
As my children have gone through public school here I’ve grown increasingly concerned about the amount of pressure on teens today. I can’t even really write about it without becoming upset. When did it become OK to rob children of their childhood? What’s with all this fear? Just read this excerpt:
Apparently now I should start worrying about PRESCHOOL age children falling behind and becoming criminals. Who knew?
If anyone else is concerned about this I want to suggest checking out the new documentary coming out this fall, Race to Nowhere. I’m going to be first in line.
