Not For The Convenience of Any Parent

Lisa had to turn down an appearance on network TV on Friday. Why? Well, the House Blond, Katie, has the lead in the second grade production of Little Red Riding Hood. Obviously the right choice.

Then it occurs to me. Why is the play happening at 2:00 in the afternoon when most parents are at work? In fact, almost every public school event is scheduled during regular school hours. That seems like a big change from my day when most school events were scheduled for the evening so that the parents could attend after work hours.

What is up with that? Is there some kind of union work rules that dictate teachers only have to put in an evening appearance on Back To School Night and for Open House?
