I've recently retired from public school secondary English teaching, and I wish every teacher read this. They go along like sheep. Only a kook speaks up in disagreement at meetings.
You left out how your parents didn't send you there to become the teacher's helper, reteaching to the rocks in your group supposedly, because supposedly 'teaching it to someone else helps you learn it better.'
Yep, that's right, folks. Teaching it to someone else helps you learn it better. And these people gurge up high emotion demanding more money for public education. Flame throwers at the ready!
