Every day, 3-year-old Morgan Kaelinâ€™s life consists of some form of therapy, lots of medications and feedings through a tube in her stomach. Oh - and watching her favorite show, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, on TV.
For the many things in her world that are so out of the ordinary for such a young child, things like getting excited when your favorite cartoon comes on make Morgan seem so . . . ordinary. But her life is anything but ordinary.
Classroom size - How many students are too many for the most optimal learning environment? That was a key issue of discussion at last weekâ€™s special meeting of the Broken Bow Board of Education.
The discussion ensued when a number of parents of next yearâ€™s 5th graders addressed the board about adding another 5th grade teacher to the elementary staff. The current 4th grade class has 72 students, meaning that with the current three sections of 5th grade there would be 24 students in each section.
