It���s all good news! ���Twas the holiday RECESS, and all through the schools, Not a student was stirring, nor breaking the rules. The standards were hung on the whiteboard with care, At student eye level, not off by a hair. The staff were all taking a short winter���s nap, With visions of freedom from mandates and cr*p: No testing! No layoffs! No NCLB! No schools labeled ���failing��� to make AYP! No furloughs! No cuts! No attacks upon teachers! No ���schools run as business��� by corporate creatures! And then a great question arose with a clatter: What if, in this magazine, nothing���s the matter? What if, just this once, there���s no gloom and distress, Only glorious stories of classroom success? Let���s look at the wonderful things in our schools, Where pupils are primed, prepped and polished like jewels, Where dreams are ignited and challenges tamed, Resources provided and heroes proclaimed. So relax, dearest friends, turn the pages and read How teachers, support staff, and students succeed. We hope your vacation is filled with delight. Have a great winter break, and to all a good night!
