Good lord....I could take this whole concept and run with it all day. It's a vicious loop of our country's general educational disparity from the rest of the world and the progressing lack of interest on behalf of the parents as well as the decision makers in politics.
The constant pull in every direction leaves language and arts at the very very bottom of the barrel.
"We need to improve our educational awareness and quality of schools!"
"Well we need more money."
"Get those test scores up and we'll get you more money"
"Why aren't our children learning shit?"
"We can't teach them real skills, we have to focus on these tests"
"Why are we getting complaints about students falling behind?"
"My kid learns at a different speed than the rest. Cater to him."
"The other 29 students are now bored and learning the bare minimum"
"The test scores aren't improving....cut their budgets."
"You do get that this is YOUR kids' education....right?"
.....you get the idea.
They call me Captain Obvious.
"Fuck them in their asses with dildos made of lava bees."
