Obama: Snowy Washington Needs 'Chicago Toughness'
and for this opinion:
Some People in Washington Need to 'Lighten Up'
i mean, read the part where CPS stays open because their kids don't have childcare. yeah. about that, ms. private school principal who would rather have kids playing outside. and that's a weird opinion anyway - i mean, who wants to be published saying that their students will be happy to have a snow day and they don't want to make them come to school? [is that what you all got out of it?] aren't you in the business of education? because i know, of course, how much teachers love snow days - but i think we're supposed to pretend to hate them.
i did have one of my first "wow, i'm a real teacher NOW" moments when i got so mad that a snow day was putting us behind...
and also, i'd pull my [hypothetical] kids from school if their principal made fun of me in the washington post. clearly not the way to handle your students' parents. whether or not one of them is the president of the united states.
