Remember, It’s All About The Kids!

Truly remarkable pettinness in NH. Back story here. NH State Rep. Peter Sullivan blogs about it here.

For 81 years, all of Franklin’s public schoolchildren, from tiny kindergarteners to graduating seniors, have marched in the annual Class Day parade down the city’s main street. Yesterday’s event was no different – except the school board’s refusal to allow students from the Franklin Career Academy, the state’s first charter school, to march in the parade left some feeling slighted.

Obvious point, or perhaps not, at a time when public schools are struggling to get resources, how stupid is it to alienate parents like this?
