  1. I almost wept when I read this news! SANITY!!!—- Principal Andrew Bott has acted SANELY in a world gone mad!!! In a society so broken, alienated, conformist and dehumanized, Principal Bott has noticed that kids are HUMAN, and acted to support this viewpoint!!! INCREDIBLE!!!—–Incredible, but true! May other Principals around the U.S. take note of Principal Bott’s initiative, take courage from it, take their heads out of the sand and follow his lead, instead of enforcing a rigid teach-to-the-test curriculum!
