That poor little white girl in that picture having to go to school with all those black kids. She is destined for failure. At least she has a white teacher and she's not being taught ebonics.

I think it is dumb to have the tax payers pay for babysitters.Do you know what that Virginia Hawkins and teacher in that daycare preschool make?
I just hope the grant welfare school handouts stop. I am writing letters to encourage them not to issuse grants for babysitters. Not right. Let these parents hire a baby sitter like most people have to do.

I love teaching preschool in the summer because its like having an outdoor classroom. You can do a lot of fun projects and don't have to worry about making a mess. Also I think being outside really is good and for the soul. http://groundsforplay.com/content/outdoor-cla...
