"With great power comes great responsibility."

Spiderman was right, of course. But he was not the first or last to have this understanding of the proper and balanced relationship between Power and Responsibility. There seems to be even more responsibility placed upon those who have Power (and position) in regards to children and education. Where children are involved, we seem to understand the value placed upon responsibility is greater; protecting and/or guarding children whether it be physically, mentally, financially, or academically is of extreme importance and value. We hold those in positions of protecting and guarding children to a higher standard. In fact, in order for community or public guardians of children to successfully and adequately do their job ... we (the community) allow our public guardians great power and authority. The power is given to serve and to protect ... not to be misused, abused, or taken lightly. So, I guess Spiderman was absolutely right: "With great power comes great responsibility."
