Student: Let me do my job

Published: Thursday, March 14, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

People say kids don’t have a say in things like this. I think kids should have a say. Why is the strike even going on?

I was really disappointed when I heard we’re not going to be in school. I always look forward to ISAT. I miss my teacher, Mrs. Bork. She is the best teacher ever. She makes my least favorite subject (which is math) fun.

I don’t want to stay home; it’s boring. My mom and dad tell me school is my “job.” Let me  work. The teachers are basically fighting for us. I feel disappointed, angry and sad because I want to learn and ISAT is so fun.

Note to readers – Molly K. Stitzel is 10 years old and a fourth-grade student at Jefferson School. Her letter submission was received before the Dixon teachers strike ended.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
