In today’s New York Times, there was a story about a new plan to bus students to private schools outside the city that have reduced tuition. The photograph was from a kindergarten class and features a very enthusiastic boy who seems to know the answer to the question that’s just been asked. The cubbies in the background are filled with large oversized backpacks, which are common for today’s schoolkids. I considered not only the physical load that children have to carry these days, but also the continued changes in the world that seem to be leaving problems to be solved in the future. The main stories of the day usually do not make their way into the kindergarten classroom, although they are sure to one day effect the lives of each of these children.
