had to reblog this cause it has much to do with the search for school that is world changing. I remember being commanded to give my kinders homework, upon pain of unemployment. And so I did. Learn how to pack your own school lunch. Look for cool rocks. Have your grownups tell you a story about how you came to the family….
It is rough out there for teachers. Don’t lump us into a demonized heap please.
THE TROLL MINIONS
Homework is evil. Truly, wickedly, horridly evil. Homework is a slimy, smelly, nasty troll which eats the souls of children. And these unfortunate souls are shoveled into homework’s gaping, slobbering maws by its devoted minions.
We call these unthinking, complicit minions ‘teachers’.
Or, if you prefer your prose less purple and more straight-forward: bad teachers are giving students bad homework for bad reasons. This is bad for learning and bad for children.
