Why She Wants to Be in a Public School

Nikki was bursting with excitement as she delivered her news to me today.

Nikki: Mommy is transferring me to Central School! (That’s the name of our provincial elementary school)

Her older sister, who was previously enrolled there, butted in.

Salma: No, Nikki, it’s not nice there in Central School.

Nikki: But I like Central School.

Salma: No.

Nikki: Yes!

Salma: No.

Nikki: Yes!

Salma: Nikki, there is many ”away” there. Many will ”away” you.

Nikki in an instant, looked up at her older sister and said in a very firm, mature and serious tone…

There’s a Miriam Defensor Santiago in the making 🙂
