The issue: It’s the first day of school.
Our view: Students should take advantage of the exciting opportunity in front of them.
Even those who cheered the loudest back in June when school let out probably admit to at least a smidgen of excitement as they head off for the first day of school this morning in Eau Claire and districts around Wisconsin.
Soon enough, though, the routine of the school year will settle in, leading some students to question the point of the lecture or lesson in front of them.
“I’ll never use this,” we can hear them say, because many of us said the same thing when we were their age.
