Teachers. We love them, we hate them, we email them at 1 a.m. in a wild concern for the paper we forgot about that was due at midnight. They have become the sun in the solar system of high school, and quite literally, we revolve around them. Another thing we revolve around is the education system. From common core to international baccalaureate, the lessons we are taught and the deadlines we plan ourselves around are picked for us with no regard for the modern student.

But tell me, when the two universes of the teachers and the curriculum that they teach collide in what is quite surely the most annoying big bang of all time, does it not frustrate the living #huskie out of you when the very people who are teaching you the curriculum, complain about it? I mean seriously people…when a teacher starts off on a rant about how “the education system is flawed” and how they don’t believe in common grading methods or the A B C system, I am nearly thrown into a super-galactic shock.

It takes a lot of nerve to preach about the ineffective nature of busy work while handing out a crossword puzzle. Now look, I love a stick-it-to-the-man teacher as much as the next person, but I just think that teachers should practice what they quite literally preach, and either work hard to change the system, or stop complaining about it while doing the very things they “don’t believe in.”
