14. Is this supposed to be a thread

about how terrible school is?

Sorry. I have some bad memories. The thing is, very few have anything to do with the school. The vast majority of bad school memories, the ONLY indignities, have to do with the other students. I obviously didn't grow up in public school with a "herd mentality." Look at my username.

As far as the adults at the schools go, my memories are almost all overwhelmingly positive. I got a great public education, from dedicated, caring people.

Today I work with a whole building of those dedicated, caring people. While we are under tremendous pressures, and often forced to do things that we don't agree with, our students generally find their school to be a wholesome, positive place.
