Alannah Alvarado (Taylorville High School Principal)
We have spent so much time planning,
Planning to keep people out of the building
That we never thought we would have to plan,
Plan to keep people in the building.
I honestly don’t know what is going on here.
Why have we neglected to find an appropriate solution?
Why are we letting the outside run our school?
Aren’t we the experts?
Everyone went to school,
So everyone knows how to do it, right?
Teachers were stupid when we were kids,
So as adults we must still see them as stupid, right?
I mean this whole thing is haywire,
Kids walking out,
Parents protesting coaches,
An administration unable to lead.
Next thing you know,
The parents will be fighting each other.
Mark my words,
This is going to get worse.
