Congratulations to Bryan and the teachers of Acadia Parish. Usually I have to post unhappy stories, but this post seemed like an important one to make Thanksgiving.
Teachers of Louisiana, even if our political leaders seem to hate you (or feel justified in sacrificing you as political pawns) and many parents don't understand enough about what is going on with education to realize the damage being done in the name of "choice" and "accountability," there are those that value your hard work and contributions to children's lives, learning and society. There are still many of us that know the truth and pray for a day when corporate interests are subborned to the interests of our children and their mentors, and not the other way around.
Today I am thankful for you.
