I attended school in Brazil from 1948 to 1957,

We had to go to school everyday,whether it was 80 degrees or minus 10 degrees,whether it was pouring or whether there was a blowing blizzard and we had to walk,about a mile.

There werent no teachers conferences,no spring breaks,no getting out of school because a snowflake came down.School was school and you went from monday to fri every week.

you kids now are a bunch of sissys,thats why we have problems with kids now a days,

I agree somewhat with T-REX. We lived just north of National Avenue near the Blue Bonnet. Jackson Street School was about two blocks away, but National was the boundry line. We walked from our house to Meridian Street School every weekday; scorching sun, rain, snow, sleet, Hell or high water, we went. No school buses for city students. Once in a while a neighbor taking their kids to school would stop, but only on pleasant days. If it was raining or snowing, we were probably too wet to get in their car.

PLUS, back then girls wore skirts, baring their legs to all of the elements. I remember walking with my sister. Her legs literally turned blue from the cold. Often times it'd be 10 a.m. until my hands felt like holding a pencil, then we'd walk back home for lunch and back to school again.
