love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
We live in the NYC metro area but while I work in NJ, A works in NYC. As a result, me and LA have the day off from school due to the snow storm. A doesn’t. Not even a delayed start. It sucks because it took her so long to get to work today and I know that plenty of other teachers are calling out because it’s difficult to get in from where they live. Plus, I know parents are keeping their kids at home. I wonder how much of NYC’s decision NOT to cancel school was about preserving ego over safety.
Even still, I’m going to be productive today. I have about 50 short stories to read and grade. LA is going to stick to her regular school schedule as close to possible. I’ll also try to have something yummy for A when she gets home.
As much as I hate to admit because I’m still pining for TX, this is another perk of living in NJ besides the mandated IVF coverage.
Oh, how about this– the local public school misspelled “Wednesday” on their website. And we wonder what’s wrong with education, especially for black, brown and poor children. Yes I did take a picture.
