Catastrophe. That sounds about right.
I know I continue to post about this, but it shocks me on a daily basis. How is this possible? How can this happen to a city like this, on such a large scale? How is it that schools less than an hour outside of the city, schools I attended as a child, are not being hit like this? I see no solution in sight and have no confidence in those who have the power to change things.
I drove by the school district building yesterday and gave students high-fives. I told them I was a teacher and someone hugged me through my car window. I told them they deserved better, but I have no answers.
