The Wrong Questions

by Profe Steve

They gave us answers.

They gave us answers. Sit still while we flood your head

They gave us answers. Sit still while we flood your head With obscure data!

They gave us answers. Sit still while we flood your head With obscure data! So we became data points

They gave us answers. Sit still while we flood your head With obscure data! So we became data points As our souls dried up inside.

*** As a teacher who CARES about my kids, I hate what schools do to them at the behest of politicians. We are neither preparing them with useful life skills nor helping them find things that feed their souls.

The most heartbreaking thing in my life is that my administration sees my precious students as nothing but data. They are valued only for how many pass the meaningless tests.

I'm sorry, admin, but I refuse to play that game.
