El 15.000 estudiante marcha

Maybe some of you have been hearing the stories about the immigrant protests over certain reforms. Well, it looks like our kids have gotten involved. The word here is that more than 1500 students from this school district alone walked out and protested in front of city hall. We had a few from SLHS join in the festivities. I know this because the administration got on the PA and announced that any student leaving the school would be suspended, and teachers shouldn't try to stop any students who try to leave.

Why would I try to stop them? This is more excitement I've seen since that time the squirrel got into the cafeteria. Besides, why should I really care if they leave or not? What are they missing? How to write a memo? Heck, I'd join the cause if I didn't have to teach memos. Why doesn't the state require me to teach something a little more up-to-date--like smoke signals or cave paintings?

Besides, it's not like there was any lesson. My non-revolutionaries couldn't stay calm after such an event. They had convulsions from excitement overload from that one time when the principal accidentally left the PA on and they could hear everything that was going on in his office, so you can just imagine how they were behaving after this little coup. They were bouncing off the walls. There was no way that I was going to get them calmed down.

FYI: In my observations, my students found the exodus either "tight" or "gay." Are those the same thing? I'm a bit behind on the current lingo. All I know is every generation has to have a cause. I guess we were about due for another children's crusade.
