It’s September! I can’t believe it. But sure enough, Starbucks is already serving their Pumpkin Spice Latte. Halloween decorations are already on display in shops. It’s back to school…well, at least for those students in the private school system where I live.
However, in the public schools…we are on strike. I could go into the reasons, but this pretty much sums it up for me best. I am bias in support of the teachers, for good reason. But at this point in the (non-) negotiations, where teachers haven’t been paid their allotted salary since May (!), and students haven’t been given their right to a proper education, I feel how Buzz Lightyear above states.
There seems to be no sign of intelligent life anywhere.
