"If they’re (students) aren’t at school they aren’t learning"
That is the biggest load of crap I have ever let enter my ears.
The fact that a teacher can claim that, makes me sick. I went to a music festival on the weekend and it taught me more about the world than school has in the past two years. In fact, school hasn’t taught me anything about the real world, only information that is meant to get me there. I honestly feel like I have wasted a lot of my time with school. Yes, I should feel privileged that I can have an education while others are stripped of that right, but to say I’m not learning if I’m not surrounded by four walls and loud teenagers, is a pretty big call.
