Season of snow shrinkage

My heart goes out to the teachers and students who are trying to cram content into an academic calendar that has suffered so much shrinkage due to snow.

When another big snow event closed schools in our part of Maryland last Thursday, I wondered, yet again, how kids will ever have time to learn and practice new skills before the avalanche of spring tests. It’s a key opportunity for parents to return to their original role as their child’s first teacher.
