The students and staff from Middle College High School took a trip to Bethpage State Park for a Field Day on Friday. It was a wonderful day with a terrific group of adults and kids.
In the age of school reform, this is the kind of great experience that has been lost in too many schools because of the test crazed culture created by No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top and whatever rubbish is coming out of the New York State Education Department and the New York City Department of Education these days.
Here is a report from Facebook on our softball victory over the students from our star pitcher Jordan Moore.
Teachers take down the students second year in a row! 7-0 shutout...to quote a student: "how the hell we losing to those old fools". Pitched 6 innings of 3 hit ball. — with Rachel Wolff Lefkof, Randy Ohmen, Jae Lundgren, James Eterno and John Poon at Bethpage State Park.
I played second base and this old fool actually had a legitimate hit for anyone who is interested.
