This is a very sad day.

The little town I live in can no longer afford to have recycling bins due to the recycling market’s decline.

This is the worst possible time in history to stop doing something that does so much good. How very sad.

Adding insult to injury, my son is TD (typical developing) and therefor cannot attend preschool in my town. Even today he told me he wanted to go to school. I’m not looking forward to the fall when his friends all go to school and he gets left behind.

If he did have a development problem, he would be able to attend as the school has 8 spots for children with special needs and only 4 spots for TD kids. We left the glorious city of Chicago, with its ridiculous waiting lists for preschool, only to find that we are on a waiting list here. Grrr.

NCLB has always been a joke. Of course children with special needs should get priority, but not providing services to typical children is over the top.

At least for now, my children will grow up in a world where those that are typical stay home, while their recyclables fill a landfill.
