I arrived at one of our local elementary schools yesterday to help judge a science fair. It is one of those schools with multiple buildings and an “open campus.” I walked up to what I thought was the front door. There a prominent sign that said:
DO NOT ENTER HERE BEFORE SIGNING IN AT THE MAIN OFFICE!
So I walked to the building to the right, but that wasn’t the right building. Then I tried the building to the left. I found a teacher and asked her for directions to the main office.
Her: “It’s in the building next door.”
Me: “You mean the building with the sign that says not to enter before going to the office?”
Her: “Yes, that would be the one.”
And these people are entrusted with educating our children.
It’s all going downhill… there’s no avoiding it.
