I had a conversation not too long ago with an administrator at another charter school that had opened last year. She told me I'd not see daylight until December, and then only in pieces. I thought she was exagerating. No, no she wasn't. She was actually being a little nice, as it turns out, much the same as how we mothers don't tell first-time pregnant women the reality of childbirth. Because, at that point, what the heck can you do about it?
