This is an important story and I am glad it is being followed. Still, it would have been nice if the Globe had waited until after the BC game to print it. Eagle fans much?

I would like to hear more about the high school mental health plans. School staff are already very aware of students in need of help. Without additional funding for services, these plans will only res more »

Shameful. The money is only found when it comes times to test. Where is the money when it comes time to teach? more »

Why are the schools being lumped into this? The schools, cops and fire already know who the the unstable are. The problem is that there are no resources to help or manage the already-identified. more »

The Globe needs to stop quoting CAL as if the organization has a real constituency. It is like feeding a troll.

I would like charter proponents to describe what they envision as the desired lifestyle for someone who goes into the teaching profession. It seems that the charter schools greatest strengths is the more »

The Roche Bros service is incredibly helpful for the basics that are picked up every week. Pick-up is helpful for me because I can do it on my way home from work and then don't have to be stuck at more »

Nut consumption is also down because most preschools and early elementary grades (and playdates and birthday parties, etc.) have restrictions because of allergies. Plenty of parents know that nuts a more »

It would also be helpful if the trailers were appropriate for the given audience. A romantic comedy or children's movie should not be have trailers containing violence.

Might I suggest that the inspectors focus more on staffing and safety concerns and less on nonsense during their licensing inspections? My child's home day care was cited for the most ridiculous of i more »

Was the gravy supposed to be made with butter instead? It looked fine in the pan, but when it came out of the oven the gravy was an oily mess.

The 3rd grade tests are scheduled for this week, at least in our district anyway.

Tomorrow's exam is an essay question. Every student gets the same question. You have to give it to every 4th grader on the same day or else they will share the question.

If you don't include the exclamation points sometimes your emails look cold and unfeeling. I feel idiotic using as many exclamation points as I do but don't see any alternative. Can some font-expert c more »

Great read! I have to admit that my first thought was, "Is it so rare to have an athlete who reads that it make the news?" As I read on, however, I really enjoyed learning about Mr. Allen's love of re more »

Incredibly loud doesn't always make for child-happy dining. I find my child has a meltdown if the noise is too loud, particularly if the music is blaring. more »

I am glad to see some awareness that the current teachers can not be expected to provide the needed extra instruction. Teachers need time to prepare their curriculum and activities, consult with other more »

Proposals should not be surprises. A good relationship has honest communication about life plans. Don't feel bad about bringing this up. more »

Off topic here, but can the Globe do something about the disturbing RCN ad that flashes before articles? Every time I see the "blood-angel" shadow my stomach turns. Are we really so immune to violence more »

I would cut the Red Sox fans some slack. If the family only visits once in a while I could see why she would want/need to center the weekend around them rather than you. I'll bet the boyfriend was sta more »

For all the nanny-state complainers, the school lunch program started in the 40s after the military had a huge problem with undernourished Depression-era draftees in the first days of WWII. It is not more »
