How are kids suppose to learn to make decisions if we
make all the decisions for them. We should all drive a black

My students finished the year reading it.
An amazing novel, it will open your eyes.

                I'm from Kansas,  where the voters threw out 
       the monkeys and evolution will be taught in schools again.
                      Only Kansas is flat, not the entire planet.
