It has always been my belief that a child had to be well documented before they were allowed to enter a classroom. I recall having to produce a birth certificate, social security number, and proof of immunizations.

I have a great deal of curiousity as to who is going to use these statistics and for what ends. It seems to me that this would create a great deal of anxiety for both the children and their families at a time when they should be just concentrating on learning and on just being kids.

Given that Lawrence has a fair amount of travelers from the south I think we should all make an attempt to learn enough Spanish to communicate with them, because only though communication with others can we learn about each other and develop friendship. You Tube is a great place to start as they have language videos.
