Tonight we began the reading on page 200 in Chapter seventeen. This was the beginning of the end for Miss Annabelle with the school board hearing. The School Board members tried to make Miss Annabelle out to be a monster, even though the test scores from her students from the third grade were higher than those of the sixth graders even. That didn’t stop the principal Miss Miner from taping the children’s responses to the questions “Does Miss Annabelle touch and hug you? And Does she like it?” The kids of course answered in a complete honest and innocent way, and their answers were taken completely out of context.
This call was very interactive with some great input from the members.
