But, as it does every year at this time (and several times throughout the year), The Post throws the rest of school under the bus.
Summer is almost over, and the disappointment about returning to class . . .Really?
Really, Denver Post, that's the message you want to send? With all your whining on the editorial page about the state of our schools (and pretty consistently getting it wrong by the way), you don't feel any responsibility to actually read your own paper and perhaps, just perhaps, make sure you aren't contributing to the anti-education culture of the state of Colorado?
Not only did school start for most of us quite a while ago, but many of us are excited about returning to school (teachers, administrators, students and parents - apparently everyone except The Denver Post's writers and editors). Yes, I know many high school students won't readily admit to being excited about being back, and certainly students don't love everything about school, but come visit my school and you can feel the excitement. We've got great students, a great staff, and a great community, and we're doing important and meaningful things with students every day (including Friday night football), but you chose to go with "disappointment about returning to class."
So, as the self-proclaimed Voice of the Rocky Mountain Empire, perhaps you could pay closer attention to the headlines in the section that many students turn to first because it's about them. Because, if you continue to use your "voice" to undermine what we try to do day in and day out, you'll have plenty more to write about on your editorial pages. Of course, maybe that's your intent.
