A Crash Curse in Crass Pedagogy


Spynd jest a phew meinutes preporin fir klass
konfident thungs wall fall in place.

Spynd mast of yer time chutting with other tachers
keeping yerself pallitikully syfe.

Buggin' lessens a fusshionably late –
thyme is naught importint any weigh.

End lussins early –
stewdents laikku langer breaks.

Stick to fizzed reutines –
so u don't huvo ta thaink.

Expeerimunt unly whun safe:
learnin' iz merely a game.

Whin students siem dead
inject 'em with fear –
nuthang warks bitter thun dread
ta get 'em in haigh gear.

Teach fur tha test
& test ta teach.

Den't bather ta review –
dat hippens exhumination waek.

Melissa: This isn't so far from what many teachers do.
Liao: Perhaps, but does such satire actually have any value?
Tim: (sigh) In my view, it's merely a rant. Its only value is stress release.
