Harming The Kids

Harming The Kids

It is now late October. Those of you who read The Wave on a regular basis might have recognized that we have not yet run a "school page" this year after running many such pages over the last ten years. The fact that we have not recognized the children of this community for the good things that they do in local schools is not the fault of The Wave. We have been told that orders have come from the district office that no school is to interact with this paper in any way. Not only are the schools not to react to requests for information from this paper, but they are not to share with us the good things that go on in the schools as well. That is petty and it is sad. We have to ask what Superintendent Bromme and his minions are hiding by keeping the press out of his buildings. We also have to ask who he is harming by not allowing the good that schools do to be shared with the community at large. The first question is hard to answer. We do not know what Bromme has to hide. The second, question, however, is easy to answer. The Wave is not harmed by Bromme’s edict, because we will survive without school pictures and school stories. Instead, he is harming the kids and that is something that an educator and district administrater should never do.
