Last year my "scoreboard" protest sign was very effective
in getting my point across.
There appears to be some residual waves of change with the school district.
They will not allow military recruiters to place "holds" on calendar dates to recruit children at the school.
They will have to actually confirm a week ahead that they will be at the school and THEN the district will put their recruiting day on the calendar.
That makes sense.
Just a little reminder of a not-so-warm welcome for me last year.
On the School District's calendar there are 5 - yes count them FIVE - colleges scheduled to show up in the next month or so.
Last YEAR it was maybe - and a BIG maybe - 2 colleges showed up.
I went through the visitor log book VERY carefully to verify my information.
So how very very interesting to see SO MANY at the very beginning of the year and NO military recruiters yet.
OK - so not all the scheduled colleges are what I would call, uh, top tier, or even tier-worthy colleges... but it amuses me to see how MANY there are on the calendar.
Maybe a kid from a small poverty ridden rural school district will actually see some more post secondary educational opportunities presented to them at their own school.
Keep in mind that one person can effect change.
It could be you.
