My third-grade daughter, Lola, came home with a remarkable story I'm finding hard to believe. She claims that the classroom has been taped off to the size of the trailers they will be schooled in next year and that they're being "trained for the trailers." She says they're learning how to use less space.
I do hope this story is a product of her wild imagination, because I'd hate to think the kids are having to suffer prematurely for what is already a minor tragedy of government priorities. It's bad enough that they'll actually be assigned to trailers next year, but restricting them now would be like making someone with a degenerative disease go ahead and use a wheel chair while he can still walk.
Is my child telling the truth?
Thanks for clarifying.
