No Excuses, None

As a parent just returning from a three-day overnight fieldtrip to Washington, DC, let me tell you, it can be done. We had around 37 kids to about 9 Chaperones, and it still was a constant head count. CONSTANT. I knew I was responsible for those children and I bet I counted literally a hundred times a day for my group. Always a teacher was at the front of the line, as well as the rear to make sure each child got to each point safely. These are 5th graders, and believe me they wanted to all go in different directions. Our teachers did a fantastic job of keeping up with ALL of the children, and we were in one of the biggest cities in America. It's called WORK, and guess what, that's what those teachers who left that child behind are PAID to do, and in my opinion they should not be on administrative leave WITH PAY. Are you kidding me? They couldn't do their job while active, why pay them to sit home??
