Where to begin.
It's the end of the school year, and my students (middle schoolers) think they should have movies and parties everyday until the last day. I'm working, and they should be, too.
Students who think they deserve an A because they have sat quietly and done all their work. They don't discriminate between quantity and quality.
A school district which has eliminated a guidance counselor position at each middle school. This leaves 1 person to deal with the problems of 670 adolescents. The 2 that are there this year could hardly keep up. We are getting 3 new quasi-administrative people per school, who are supposed to help with the counseling. And deal with teacher questions and discipline issues. Right. That will work.
