It's not the kids. It's never the kids. It isn't their fault the system is what it is. Don't ever blame the kids. Not only won't I discuss my students, I won't discuss where I teach. This blog is solely to discuss (and quite frankly make fun of) the bizarre policies and unpredictable behavior of the Chicago Public Schools. I hope you well all join in the fray. Just remember the one rule, it's not about the kids - don't discuss them - talk about anything else, just not the kids. (Insulting your principal probably isn't a smart thing to do either).
