School S___s

What could the title be??

Truth is, when kids used to say to me "School Sucks" I took it personally as a challenge on more than one level. One, the language was vulgar. Two the implication was that as a teacher, I was 'school', and so the student was making a comment about me!

Now that I've got over 20 years experience in education, I have come to agree that "School Sucks", but I've started this blog to expend the thought: "School Sucks: WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT !"

There is a lot of logic in that. But, you know, schools "sucked" 20 years ago too. Is it just the nature of the beast? In today's context, what has changed from 20 years ago inside the school and outside the school. Are they in harmony?
