My local school district sends a newsletter to all local residents to inform us of the various activities and achievements of the students and faculty in the school system. The most recent newsletter had an article about the Knitting Club in one of the middle schools.
What an excellent idea! They are teaching kids a skill they can enjoy throughout their lives and, if you'll read the article, community responsibility. More importantly, I counted 10 Boys Who Knit in the picture! I think the faculty sponsors are to be commended both for their community involvement and for attracting boys to knitting at an age where gender identity is over-stressed.
