With a Whimper

Monday August 18th 2008, the first day of the St. Louis Public School 2008-2009 school year. I've seen this date on television commercials, the sides of buses and mobile billboards driving around downtown. It seems no expense was spared in the campaign to ensure high attendance for the first few weeks of school.

Actually one expense was spared. The Automated Substitute System will not be up and running until Thursday. For myself and the rest of the substitute teachers employed by the St. Louis Public Schools, summer vacation marches on. And to think I went to bed at 10:30 last night. What a waste.
