I will never forget this librarian refusing to allow my 3rd grade daughter to check out a book at the BES library because it was above her "reading level" as defined by the Accelerated Reading range assigned to her. We went right up to the Lawrence Public Library and checked out that book!

A lot of things they do here are messed up.

Like not raising the flag back to full staff for two days at the Junior High. And they are teaching our children. Good Grief
