Presidents Day

Presidents' Day Usually, if everything lines up correctly, I post to this blog on Mondays. Or, at least that's the plan. This being Presidents' Day and a Monday and no other appointments, I could not resist posting this video about Presidents Day And of course, while thinking of Presidents" Day and all the educative possibilities, I'm struck by that never ending irony - that we in America give students a day off on a holiday, when that day could be spent in learning about the work and accomplishments of the Presidents. And, it might have been good for our current President to have learned more about former Presidents - especially George Washington, who as Bill Maher has said, was reputed to have claimed, "I can not tell a lie." I guess it strikes me as pretty odd that we spend more time on this day selling cars than we spend in teaching students about leadership.
