Having your daughter meet with the counselor may not be a bad idea if she would open up. The counselor would then be another 'witness' for your side. I would certainly talk to the other parents and see if this is a widespread problem. A united front works well. My mom is an elementary principal, and she is totally aware of the teachers that she has in her school that are sub-par. All she can do is give them poor evaluations. Most schools are unionized, and that...
http://www.cnn.com/2004/EDUCATION/09....ap/index.html I have absolutely no illusions that this will happen in Indiana, where our motto is "Shut up and eat it. Families are losing their farms."

Our preschool is doing their before-school clean up. They are planning to use Round-up around the playground.

I cannot find the original information that I had to caused me to ban it at home. TIA, Anna B.
Michelle-- You have been in my thoughts since I got the news, but I did not know how to find you until I went to the Diaper Hyena. I don't stuff a diaper that I don't wonder how you are. It sounds like you are handling everything with the strength and grace that I would expect from you. Serenity and Peace Anna
