RGSMC Dialogue with Parents
I went to a parents' orientation in RGSMC this morning. Parents had a chance to dialogue with school officials and faculty. It's a challenging task God has given RGSMC (and every other school around). Schools deal with people's souls and lives. Somehow, during the dialogue, I got the impression that parents expect the school to do "everything." A false sense of priorities can envelope the thinking of parents, and in the process project their shortcomings to the school. Of course, RGSMC is sensitive to its own shortcomings and wants to improve for the best. I look forward to a continuing parent-school partnership and dialogue at RGSMC. It's healthy and life-giving to both sides.
