1+1

1+1 is no longer 2

1+1 is no longer 2 1+1=3

In school teachers teach us They teach us what they think we need to know

I learned... Don’t run if you’re being chased Don’t speak loud if someone is hurting you

I learned... Don’t run if you’re being chased Don’t speak loud if someone is hurting you Keep your hands to yourself but that doesn’t apply when the teacher is grouping you

I learned...

I learned... Keep your head down a stare at the questions you don’t know

I learned... Keep your head down a stare at the questions you don’t know Keep your eyes on your own paper and if you don’t know the answer mark C

I learned... Keep your head down a stare at the questions Keep your eyes on your own paper and if you don’t know the answer mark C If you feel like someone following you pretend you are on the phone

I learned... Keep your head down a stare at the questions Keep your eyes on your own paper and if you don’t know the answer mark C If you feel like someone following you pretend you are on the phone The teacher never fails you do
