The Wall

Are the students learning anything? They never listen. They show no respect. They can’t talk without swearing. They never show up, can’t assess them. Frankly, there’s no hope for them at all.

Oh but they are learning.

Just look closely.

Scrawled in permanent marker on the classroom wall: ‘MEAT IS MURDER’.

They use litter as a form of subliminal advertising, decorating classrooms with empty packets, exposing other students to the trends.

And they know their history – engraved in a chair is the propagandist slogan ‘ALL HAIL ADOLF SMITH’.

They are your best critics.

The question is: are you learning, teacher?
