occupy movement succeeds

I just received the letter from H’s school that I never thought I’d see:

Maybe there is teacher accountability within our public school systems after all. But it takes activism on the part of many families, and a supportive administration, to force the change.

I fought for my son, but I also fought for the other 19 kids in the class. At 5- and 6-years old, they have so much potential, such eagerness to learn and do well. They didn’t deserve 5 months with a teacher who was out to lunch. At least there’s another 5 months in the year to help them discover a love of learning.

We won this fight. The irony of it is, we just had a promising interview this morning at a private school we would LOVE to send H to next year.
