When I tried to walk through the State House driveway, the guard stopped me. You can’t go that way. What? “I didn’t make the rule.”
I turned around and went the other way….thinking.
How sad. He clearly did not believe in the rule he was enforcing. A prisoner of his job. And then I thought more. So many of the folks doing special education procedures feel the same way–“I didn’t make the rule.”
I’m stuck with it. I’ll do it. But I don’t believe it’s a good rule. I don’t believe it’ll help kids learn.
It is sad when so many are stuck in jobs that they don’t really believe are functioning as they should.
