School Programs: Why Do We Have Them?

Do you remember doing a school play or church Christmas program when you were a child? I remember the last few days before a performance.

Fine Arts Competition

What If?

What if? What if we were having school today? Students would be in their desks, working with a teacher looking over their shoulders. Teachers would be able to say 100 more times the things they have already said 1,000 times this school year. "Hold your pencil like this." "Look at me when I am talking." "Slow down and do your best; it's not a race." Or- What if the privi...
