Virginia does two things that I'd love to see changed. 1) We have our state end of the year exams several weeks before the end of the year and 2) Our state legislature (both parties) consistently say they are for "education first," but refuse to let schools start before September because businesses want the high school kids to work after the college kids have left for school.
At any rate while schools around the US have already started closing for the summer (and while we are on it should we even be wedded to an agrian calendar?), my kids still are going to the 18th of June (and yes they are done with their AP and state exams). This is a long winded way of saying that this blog will, as always, will continue posting all June, July and August. After all I have a new crop of students to teach this summer and need to find some new things for them.
