I haven't until now. Thank you!

My father is a retired HS English Teacher. I am going to send this to him.

The second I figure out how to put this on my blog, I am! I a hope you do not mind. Just yesterday, at our 2nd grade party I had a discussion with a mom who was adding days with private swim coach for her daughter because "colleges really look at the times you get in club swim." She is 8 and parents are thinking of college scholarships. REALLY??? I did not grow up this way at all! There are so many of my girls friends who have private coaches so young. What if they got into a good school because they got good grades, did great things for their community, maybe loved to play a sport and were honest and hardworking? I hope they give out medals and trophies for that someday!

wow, that was powerful. I am happy to say that is not the case so much with us. but I for sure see it happening. I hope to God I never do that to my kids. I think when the film actually comes out all teachers and parents should be required to see it!
