3B: A rare and wonderful opportunity
I have hopes and fears for 3B. I hope we all make the effort to become informed voters. Find out what exciting changes the new administration is making to improve our school. I hope we realize the rare and wonderful opportunity we have to reinforce those efforts.
I fear we will close our minds and just vote past offenses and grievances, have a “Prove it, then we’ll support you” attitude. That’s like having a promising new boxer, tying his hands behind his back, throwing him into the ring and saying, “When you win, then we’ll buy you boxing gloves.” A fight is hard to win like that.
Finally, I believe when we show our children and teachers that we value and are willing to invest in them, then we will see the results we desire.
