Everybody into the Pool

“For parents across America, the school car line is a daily punishment. The stern, annoyed command from some poor teacher or volunteer to ‘pull all the way forward, please!’ The breakdown of the whole process when someone inevitably doesn’t. The long minutes spent idling, spewing exhaust. The cones, and walkie-talkies, and little signs hung from rearview mirrors that help deliver so many kids, individually, right to their school’s doorstep.” The Atlantic (Gift Article): The Agony of the School Car Line. (When I was in elementary school, we walked to school. Even uphill, both ways, it beat carpool lines.)
