I had to know what was going on and I got my classroom phone to make a direct line to my boss.
“It’s about our little talk last Friday. What’s going on with the school board and why were you so adamant about me changing how I teach my students?”
“It’s about some upcoming changes district wide.”
Ha! I knew it.
“What upcoming changes?”
“I can’t tell you everything, but it’s supposed to be part of a larger plan to improve test scores and property values in the greater Hollandus Landing metro area.”
“Seriously? We’re already a top-tier district and Hollandus Landing alone has been a multi-time award-winning city in local, regional, and even national publications. We even dethroned Madison as the most livable city just last year, for Eugenia Del Pino’s sake.”
“Calm down, Pilar. I only want the best for this school.”
“So do I. Have a good day.”
I hung up and just shook my head.
