CLEVELAND, TX – To color? Or not to color? That just may be the question.

Rumors regarding erasing the use of crayons in the classroom are swirling at Southside Primary Elementary school in Cleveland. According to the district, low 3rd and 4th grade test scores are the reason for changing the so called ‘color method’

According to this response we received from Cleveland ISD, and this letter being sent home to parents. They never intended to take out coloring completely. The district says crayons will be introduced on an academic level and not to pass the time. Maybe they’re just thinking outside the lines?

Although, there could be an issue with those fridge magnets, there could be a lot more room here.

So the school is going to color less, big deal. Next time, send the letter home a little earlier so we can eliminate the hub bub.

Thanks.
