I have been very discouraged in the last two weeks. It is evaluation time, without reflection time in many school districts in the area. The equity conflict increases as we look at the proposed and/or approved school budgets. There seems to be no justice in sight. What a shame!
You may think dear reader that I am complaining because there is no raise for teachers. That fact bothers me, but I am grateful to God that has provided a job for me and I am content with God’s provision. However, I feel discouraged and very concerned about the heart condition of the people in leadership positions.
Whether we like or not leaders are people with flaws, for no one is perfect but God. We must pray for them! They need to have wisdom from above as they make their decisions on how and what the future leaders of this country are going to learn. Will they become wise and compassionate to those who are different from them, if they do not have wise and compassionate adults to emulate?
