Happy February 10th, 2010. It looks like we will have more spare time on our hands to do some deep thinking. Many neighborhoods see little improvement despite efforts to clear streets. At this point it is hard to motivate the kids away from video games and texting to more productive educational activities. To be fair, many kids have worked hard helping dig out cars and driveways and at being good neighbors and they are whipped too. There will be games and events to reschedule once this is over. But, how do teachers make up for so much lost time when pacing rules the classroom and PSSA tests are coming soon?
