Irony #2: Kindergarten show canceled so kids can keep studying

Sometimes life is so ridiculous that it deserves a comment. What is education in this country coming to? How does stifling creativity and cooperation prepare kindergarteners for college and careers? Should children be drones who can recite facts and figures but who don’t know how to dream or create or have fun? It makes me sad.

This column was in today’s Washington Post.
