I will have a lot more on this later but a friend on Facebook made an interesting observation. One of the Passages highlighted in the Times Union that will be taught to our children is the "'The Librarian of Basra,'” which set in Iraq, features a woman trying to save books from firefights and bombs, presumably from the American military."
It's a book about someone in a war zone trying to save books, that is going to be taught in a district that is getting rid of books.
There friends is the definition of irony. Then teachers are going to have to explain what librarians are because the district has already gotten rid of most of them. UGH!!!!
I don't know, but I was hoping kids could be a little older before they learned about war zones too.
I have grave concerns about the districts new initiative.
