hey!  it worked!  anyway--i hear you on this, all the way.  sometimes i just feel so frustrated with the way the teachers are teaching to the tests and not to the child.  my daughter's teacher even removed painting from class because there was no time to fit it in.  this is first grade for god's sake!  her teachers are kind and loving, but restricted and it is eating away at her lvoe of learning.

btw--i think L looks spiffy in his new glasses!

I think you've hit the nail on the head, Christine. The teachers are wonderful, but there are so many restrictions being placed on what they can or can't teach in the classroom that the curriculum has suffered so greatly, and so many kids are being left out.
