(response to an editorial)
Fire all the bad teachers and all the problems with education will be solved.
All children will excel. All budgets will be balanced.
Maybe fire all the bad administrators.
Maybe fire all the bad school board members.
Maybe fire all the bad politicians.
Maybe fire all the bad parents.
Maybe take a more careful look at the problems.
Maybe look for a better solution to the problems.
Maybe take a look at the outdated and overloaded curriculum.
Maybe take a look at the diverse needs of the children in the classroom.
Each child is different.
Maybe it’s time to teach each child that anyone can succeed,
anyone can reach their goal.
If one truly believes one can, works hard, and persists in trying,
one will succeed.
Some things take longer.
Some things are harder,
All things are possible.
Never give up.
