Perspectives: 78/365

Alannah Alvarado (Taylorville HS Principal)

As if there isn’t enough to deal with already,
Leaky roofs,
Truancy,
Who hasn’t voted for NHS,
There’s a lot of stuff going on here.

Besides, a bunch of our kids don’t do sports or music,
They are worried about learning the language,
About assimilating into a new culture,
About whether ICE will break its promise
To let them stay.

Someone else can deal with this sports issue
It rained last night and the ceilings are dripping,
Two students have run away,
One parent went over my head about her kid missing NHS,
And Latino students are scared to come to school.

Sports and music can wait.
