Here is a catchy tune for singing together. It says what schools should be. Somehow, high stakes standardized tests are not inspiring. Schools should be dedicated to helping children grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially. The children and schools in the pictures should represent all of our children. Thanks to Save Our Schools and the New York State Allies for Public Schools for the use of photos from their web sites. Thanks to Alan Friend for singing and playing the song, and thanks to the late George W. Cooke who wrote the melody long ago.
