I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out; and I thought how it is worse, perhaps, to be locked in. — Virginia Wool
Both of my children have been fortunate to have some good teachers. I still believe the ones who made mistakes had good intentions; I just wish they had been more open in their thinking and less judgmental. I believe they can learn from their mistakes, and maybe one day they will.
Slogans like the ones on the outside of the classrooms above certainly indicate that teachers at least see the need for change. I can only hope that the changes really are happening in the classrooms and that no one feels locked in or locked out like we did.
