All summer I’ve been looking forward to kindergarten here in Logan, UT. In my class in Idaho, we had kindergarten for four hours (you know, half a day). Gavin’s preschool, Morningside, was three hours each day. So I sort of thought he would be in kindergarten for 3 to 4 hours. We bought school supplies. I planned for a lovely year of not having to pay for his schooling while I had 3-4 hours to work in the mornings.
And then came today’s letter. Kindergarten here is only 2 1/2 hours per day. And he doesn’t even have to bring his own school supplies.
What is this, glorified preschool?
Actually, I’m not even sure it’s glorified. The concern over Gavin’s rhyming ability suddenly becomes clear…
I feel like screaming. Quite literally, screaming.
Now I’ve got to decide: Pay for private kindergarten? Or deal with this silliness from the Utah public education system?
