It’s not only legally OK for the principal to pray for the kids to do well on the STAAR, the Dawg thinks it’s a darned good idea. A principal of a school in Mississippi claims that her students’ scores went up dramatically in 2013 because of prayer.
So prayer is a good thing. It turns out, however, that there may have been other factors at play in that Mississippi school. Cheating, for example. The Mississippi Department of Education concluded that the principal had directed teachers to correct wrong answers. After a hearing in which eyewitnesses ratted on the principal, the Department denied the principal a renewal of her license, and barred her from re-applying for 20 years.
So say a prayer. But let God handle it from there. You keep hands off.
The praying principal was at Heidelberg Elementary in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
DAWG BONE: DEAR GOD: HELP THE KIDS SCORE WELL. HELP ME NOT TO CHEAT. AMEN.
Tomorrow: Erin Go Bragh!!
