Occupy Kindergarten

Susan Notes:

Every teacher should occupy her/his own classroom.

Do it!

by Susan Ohanian

This YouTube presentation by a 15-year kindergarten teacher will make you laugh in delight and appreciation. Here's a fellow who declares "They're going to have to pry the crayons out of my cold, dead hands." He's where he wants to be.

And these kinders in Santa Monica are lucky.

Kurt Schwengel celebrates kindergarten and also documents the horrors imposed by inappropriate standards.

I've ordered my Occupy Kindergarten T-shirt. They come in every color imaginable.

Here is Kurt Schwengel's homepage.
