As far as I can tell, the month of May has become a time for playing board games and watching movies in our high schools.
After Advanced Placement exams, which are in early May, many teachers seem to throw in the towel. My daughter's school days consist of movies, parties and game-playing.
Her AP English teacher is doing a poetry unit. Thank you, teacher! Thank you! There is still a lot for these kids to learn, even if the all-important AP exam is over.
To top it all off, our school will be closed on May 26 because all the teachers are needed for graduation. Why not cancel the whole month while we're at it?
