Otherwise, a great parade

       Short on space this issue, so real quick, here’s a bemuser from the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Someone from the Chipotle’s float was handing out small, thin items to the crowd. A little girl got one and showed it to her mother, who examined it with an eagerness that soon faded.
       “I wanted a coupon, not a magnet,” she said, despondently. Ah, freebees.
        On a more serious note, below is a column regarding educational options from an experienced parent volunteer. An idea exchange on the subject is welcomed.
