Dude that’s not sChOOl.

Boy, I’ve never been able to figure out why we hold classes after these state testing sessions.

“Here you go kids—a four hour testing environment. And when you’re done with that you can spend the rest of the day studying.”

Heck, if you can call it studying. Yesterday I’m pretty sure that I could have bounced a tennis ball off 7th Period’s heads (truthfully a dream come true). They’re zoned out. They can’t contribute because they’re all tapped out. Why do I have to deliver a lesson plan that I gave my all and pretend that it didn’t go to waste yesterday?

Dammit people! Just because bodies are in seats and there are tools like textbooks and the Internet doesn’t mean that there is learning going on! And by, “dammit people,” I really mean “dammit Administration.”

They know this, but we’re going to have school even if it means there will be no learning at all. Roll has already been taken, hasn’t it? We have our state money, don’t we? Look, have these tests. I think they reflect the soulless stance this nation has on education, but whatever. Just don’t be an obstacle to learning. Lord knows there’s already plenty.
