This reads like a 12 year old's fanfic. Don't they teach kids not to write "and then" stories anymore?

Blank was blank. After blank, blank. While blank, blank. After blank, blank. When blank, she/he blanked. They blanked. While blank, her friends blanked. Now she blanks. But she has blanked.

Instead of teaching kids how to write, they teach them how to quote articles and books for 5 pages.

Fucking this. I've been trying to put my hatred of English classes into the right words (which I ironically can't do because my English classes sucked). Add in that reading is all about interpreting symbolism (the right way) and not about recognizing themes, influence, foreshadowing, or looking at things from other character's perspective.

Nope, the father wasn't concerned that he lost his daughter to a cult. He's just a one dimensional bad guy who bookends the story of a strong independent woman and her magic negro group.

The radio this morning was talking about schools taking out analog clocks as kids can't read them, instead of educating the kid maybe? I recall using clocks in math to teach angles, also they were posted at the back of the room for a teacher not the front for students to avoid being a distraction anyhow as you get yelled at for turning around. With that gone is it hard to believe that and then they dumbed down writing?

Analog clocks are a relic that exist because it was the most mechanically simple way to represent time. In the digital era, the analog clock design is no longer necessary. It's existence will soon be only in museums. If you think reading an analog clock is an important skill, then why stop there? Should we also instruct kids on how to use sliderules?
