This is public school, not a communist-state-controlled-slave-camp---oh wait.
It's a prison, where children are kept locked up all day forming little gangs, and then they come home with homework that I HAVE TO DO because it's never age-appropriate. Some parents were actually celebrating that our kids got the "tough teachers" with "high expectations" because we will have boatloads of homework every night, which means the kids are Surely Learning Real Good.
God have mercy.
You know what class I have failed every year of my entire life? Following Rules and it's pre-requisite: Remembering All the Rules and Procedures. I tossed the school handbooks (all 3 of them) right in the trash, because I don't have any space left in my house for all of this crap.
If it weren't for this j-o-b, I would homeschool and move to a goat farm.
Or a beach shack.
IF I HAD ONE.
