It’s the first day of school for Xy today. I took a picture before she drove off to Algiers this morning.
Here’s hoping this school year doesn’t suffer any major interruption like we had last time. It sure would seem smarter to me if we all took a cue from Dillard and started school after the height of hurricane season was past. Chances are New Orleans won’t get hit by a major hurricane in any given year, but chances are we will evacuate at least once. Evacuation is a pain for everyone, but I think the academic cycle could be easily adjusted to accommodate nature’s patterns and minimize that pain for schools.
