"It's the districts fault. Well, really it's Mike Miles because he makes us do all this stuff in class." - The kid in the corner who never does ANYTHING. Does he really believe that or is he just quoting something he read in a blog or the paper? Wait, was he reading? Does he know what the news is? Eye opener. He also said that he acts up because nobody is hard on him. Wow. I'm to blame too.
"It's the students, we know what we are supposed to be doing and we don't do it." Self reflection. I love it.
"The principals are too strict. They have too many rules, but they don't enforce any of them either so I'm not sure if strict is right." What does that say about the purpose of rules? Which are important and which can we let go? Fascinating.
