Requiem for a class
Next year, my school's schedule is changing and things will look very different. I'm not opposed to change. However, I sometimes wonder about the reasons, and the foresight and forethought that come along with these seemingly abrupt changes.

Of course it pains me to think of one more wonderful program gone...You're right. There are so few teachers left with the freedom to design a curriculum to meet the needs and interests of the kids who will spend their year with them. But it was your last paragraph that reminded me that you are your mother's daughter...Who does the adapting? Who pays? Or as Dora would always say at principals' meetings when changes were announced by the superintendent, "How will this affect the children?" Or as another good friend, Meg Robbins always says, "So how is this working out for the kids?" What else matters except how it works out for the kids?

It's so true! The program is not totally gone, but I am worried about its future :-(
