She wasn’t expected to be a school volunteer
Back then, schools just had less events. While this is truer of parents in the 70’s than the 80’s, most mamas weren’t expected to make regular appearances as classroom volunteers. In fact, this commenter on Today’s forum said, “â€œNo mom was ever in our classroom. We rode the bus to school on the first day, had one Christmas party that consisted of store-bought cookies and cherry kool-aid, then school ended and we played outside until Labor Day. That was the school year.â€ Honestly, that sounds great. While many of us love seeing our kids in the classroom environment, thinking of ways to entertain twenty plus kids as well as having to clean up after them as an unpaid teacher’s assistant for the day isn’t our jam.
