It is surprising and disturbing how many people think of March 17 as a holiday because it is St. Patrick's Day. I recently spoke to an adult educator who simply had no idea that the reason children had the day off from school was because it is Evacuation Day. I can only guess what was going through his mind. As an educator, I believe that the natural curiosity we so often see in children should be matched by the "models" standing in front of them.
