Hey, Dance Teacher! Parents Work!
Please don’t tell us to unenroll from the dance program if we don’t like how it’s run or to or resign ourselves to the fact we can’t be involved in school events because we work. That’s not what’s best for the children of anywhere between 58.5 and 74.6 percent of American households. Instead, let’s hold the public programs that serve our children and their taxpaying parents to a higher standard. We can start with two simple things: planning and communication. Parents can do two simple things too. Challenge the status quo and vote out the school board representatives and recreation commissioners who continue to operate with outmoded styles. Perhaps our all-male Park and Recreation board could benefit from some working moms to collaborate with the working dads who currently serve. Ladies, who’s in?
