Imagine the student who is in our class and is constantly distracted by the real world.
If only they knew how important that top down mandated, prefabricated, content-bloated curriculum that we are responsible for dispensing truly is.
If only they would focus on what they are told to do.
If only they would stop distracting others from doing what they are told to do.
If only they would stop asking questions that derail our laminated lesson plans.
If only they would sit still.
If only they would be a little less... human.
