I’m big in the 3rd gradePosted: 2011-11-21
I have two nieces, 10 and 7, and Monday morning I went to their classrooms to give a small talk on my walk across country and getting to meet the president. I also allowed them, as a class, to nominate any issue they felt was important for President Obama to know, and then vote (by secret ballot) for two or three of those concerns to be included in the book. The fourth grade felt “students should be able to choose classes and not have to wear school uniforms,” while the second grade students felt “people should not be allowed to ride their motorcycles at night (and make a lot of noise while people are sleeping) and also people should be made to pick up their trash and not litter.” I’m happy to say Those notes went directly into the hands of Barack Obama.
