First Day of School
It seems strange to start back to school when it is August and so hot. The papers are saying how even five year-olds now are being given homework. I guess the schools are all worried about the poor education our public schools have been giving students. I know I was amazed at the lack of basic skills often found in students entering college. I guess we need to pray for teachers.
On the other hand, I do find that the girls in our school here in Miami are receiving an exceptional education and are accepted into the best colleges and universities. I admire the dedication of the faculty. May all our children and their teachers have a wonderful new academic year and a safe one.
