I went to Laconia High in the late 40s and early 50s. We just went from the 8th grade to the 9th Grade — just down the hall. We did not have any one hold our hands. Most of us turned out okay. Now it is going to take the principal one year to figure out which hand to hold. Of course our hands did not have cell phones, i Pads, smart phones, etc. If you got to the next class late you got marked late.
What is next, holding there hands when they go off to college? Dad just put me on a bus to college.
Sorry this is not as long as those long winded Dear Editor letters, which I do not read any more, but you get the point. Paying the principal to hold their hands. Come on — time to grow up. And this is HEADLINE NEWS?
