This is the time of year when school districts all around the country are making difficult decisions. For one reason or the other, educators are not brought back and programs are cut for the next school year. It's quite amazing how change can whack people right across the face. Some say they never saw it coming or have a hard time understanding how certain decisions are made. The fact remains that people must stand tall and turn a negative into a positive.
