If you work in education, then you know this is the time of year that educators start planning for the following school year. It may seem early, but March is prime time for preschool and kindergarten round up. After weeks of angst (on my part), I think we've finally made a decision about where to send our older daughter to school this fall. Without a crystal ball, it was a hard decision to make. Where would she thrive? Make friends? Get the best education? Be happy and secure? I'm confident we've chosen the best placement, but boy, it wasn't easy.

Sending my kids out into the world is hard for me, as I'm sure it is for many of you. That's why it gave me shivers to hear this audio of a preschool teacher berating her students. The thought of one of my children sitting in that classroom literally made my heart ache, and I say "Bravo!" to the little girl's parents for realizing that their child was in trouble and having the guts to do something about it.

What do you think?
