    Out of all the people to give that speech, it's the hippie pothead looking kid lol.

    Now, I'm not gonna pretend I know how this teacher operates daily in her classroom so I'm not gonna automatically side with the kid, for all we know she might not be lazy and the kid just wanted attention...but still, Inb4 DW automatically sides with the teacher.

    The politics of teaching are what is wrong with education.

    My father was a teacher, was basically let go and black listed because he refused to use slide after slide on those overhead projectors. Kid is right, few students actually learn anything with packets, but it probably isn't the teachers fault. Blame the administration for enforcing policies that are nothing buy day cares in disguise.

    Couldn't be any truer.

    In Florida every student has to take an assessment test called the FCAT. Basically the better grade the students get the better "grade" the school gets, which in turn gets them more funding. What ends up happening is you spend half the school year preparing for the test and then the other half learning something useful. At least half of the year is wasted on preparing to take a standardized test, which is the absolute worst way to gauge understanding.

    God damn you

    I was just guessing at numbers and figures

    Immediately YouTube'd the song and smoked a cigarette while singing along.
