What Snow Days Prove
I'm looking out across the snow covered lake right now as Winter Storm Ella has begun to drop a new layer. Today is the fifth snow day of the year, and tomorrow looks like it will be the sixth. Watching the news reminds meof what snow days prove about education. One parent interviewed about all the time her child has spent at home this winter complained about what her child is missing out on at school. She lamented that her child would be playing video games all day.
Here are three things that snow days prove:
1. Parents believe education is the responsibility of the school system.
2. Parents get annoyed when teachers are not available to babysit their child.
3. Routines are necessary for children.
