As someone who pretty much despised school (at least until the 11th grade), it makes me very sad when our son has to go back to school.
Fortunately he does not seem to be as bothered by it as I always was.
(As a school board member, is it wrong of me to write this post? Oh well. I have to call it as I see it. Part of our goal as the school board is to make sure that school is meaningful and purposeful for every student.)
