I’m 82 years old and was shocked the other day when I read about a school bus wreck in the New Roads area.

Why were 3-year-olds being taken to school on a bus? Why are three-year-old babies even going to school?

Are political appointees forcing our teachers to become baby sitters for parents?

No wonder qualified teachers are leaving the profession!
