I remember that feeling.
It's true..little white shirted robots..apart from art..that was always fun..mainly because it never claimed to be something you'd need later in life..so pictures you remember..adding up..not so much.,
it's terrible when young minds are bored.
Thanks Anthony, Jaerose, Sheilagh :):):)
I was a real trouble-maker in school--bored, stifled, wishing to be outside where life pulsates. Hey! Teacher! Leave them kids alone. Great work!
Thanks Nico :)
Hi Stan, phew,there's nothing worse than a drab education!Here’s mine
Sure they pulsate - with boredom. This is great. Tight writing.
Thanks Andy, Alice :):)
The best days of your life are generally those you remember but do not think so at the time. School was a mixed bag, like the curate's egg "good in parts".
Thanks Old Egg :)
With so much technology to utilize and choose from, education can be innovative! Teachers are tested to the full! Nicely Stan!Hank
Thanks Kaykuala :)
School is a holding pen for the young designed to keep the public safe during working hours:)
Thanks Cressida :)
Sounds like school all right :)
Thanks Steerforth :)
I actually liked most of my K-12 classes. I was in a district that was pretty innovative for its time. College was another matter, though. Great instructors and challenging material were sometimes hard to come by.
Thanks Ann :)
Stan, it's true. There are too few engaging, interesting teachers these days. In the States, I believe it's because teachers have been reduced to teaching to the test: Students engorged with information that they will eventually regurgitate on a meaningless standardized test.I was lucky back in the 60s and 70s. Had some amazing teachers, some of whom remain friends! Thanks, Amyhttp://sharplittlepencil.com/2013/01/31/chanteuse-in-sneakers/
Thanks Amy :)
Yes, there are teachers and there are day-care staff.
Thanks JCN :)
