My Thoughts On This Strike

So, yeah, got that infamous letter from the superintendent today. My first impulse was to call her up and tell her to cram it up her arse, but cooler heads prevailed and I set it aside.

I have no intention of sending my children to school. My kids don't want to see strangers in the classroom, they want their regular teachers back!

But I have had the opportunity to read other views. It's so totally P.C. (and you regular readers know I hate that crap) but how can I consider myself to be educated if I don't see or read these things for myself? Hmmm???

There are those who seem to be pointing fingers and saying "Oh you dumbass! How could you not vote in the levy? How can you hate the board of education?"

For the record, it takes a lot for me to hate someone, and I don't even know these people on the board, how can I hate them? No, I just don't trust them. I've only lived here for 3 1/2 years, but all I hear is how no one trusts the board. Why? What, in the last 30 years, has been happening in this district?

But I'm getting a headache. I'm so sick of rumor upon rumor upon rumor anymore. The bus drivers are saying this! The superintendent is saying this!

I guess my emotions got stirred up Monday when I, against all good judgment, go in a deputy sheriff's face. I was wrong, but DAMMIT!! I just want to shake someone. I'm so frustrated! How do I explain this to the younglings, especially Daughter. How would you tell a four-year-old why she can't go to school?

I guess what this boils down to is this: I'm pissed off and frustrated. I'm thisclose to yanking my kids out, but I don't want to take them away from teachers they've come to know and appreciate.

Crap. Crappity crap crap crap.....

I'm done rambling. I've got a fookin' headache.

Just to let you know I enjoy reading your blog. It is the most intelligently written thing I've come across in my web search for strike blogs. :)

Also, great site layout. Lovely, really.
