” A very courageous fifth (grade) teacher in the Chicago Public Schools has written a scathing critique of the almost comical misery she and her students endured when they participated in a massive February 28 event kicking off Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Active Schools campaign.
“If you are a parent, imagine that you take your child on a trip and they are very excited,” writes Putnam. “Now imagine they have to wait on a bus and stand in straight lines for three hours straight. Then imagine after one hour of ‘fun’ that they have to sit around and wait for three more hours that bus to pick them up. Oh, did I mention that are not allowed to have a morsel of food the entire time?”
Michelle Obama, Dominique Dawes, Gabby Douglas, Allyson Felix, Bob Harper, Bo Jackson, Colin Kaepernick, Sarah Reinertsen, Paul Rodriguez, Serena Williams, Ashton Eaton dance with Chicago kids at the launch of Let’s Move Active Schools at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Lovely , an all day field trip with nothing to eat … that’s one way to get the kids to lose some weight . And who was the genius that chose to supply XL sized T-shirts to 10 year olds ?
