McTeachers for Brownell

Last night was fun, sort of. The teachers at my school, who have taken pay cuts, furlough days, freezes, and all sorts of abuse from both State and probably District, were out on a corner shaking signs and encouraging passers-by to dine at McDonald's.

We are trying to raise money for Science Camp, among other things. So much has been cut that we offer very little beyond the classroom any more.

In order to take Band, a student has to get to school before 7:30 AM, and almost everything else requires volunteers, both kids and adults. And even then, we get beaten back. No good deed goes unpunished.

The National economy may be slowly getting stronger, but State economies are in terrible shape. Alas, so are our schools and teachers.

Remember Ellsworth . . .
