HAHAHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHHA - pretty funny!
These are all the kids in 6th grade with a 4.0 GP at Wood Middle School in Alameda, California. During this awards assembly, which I attended because the kid in the blue Vans shirt belongs to me, I became enraged. I often become enraged when I am at WMS.
The cause of my furiosity was a different award given at this assembly, the perfect attendance award, an award my offspring also received. After presenting the attendance award to a much larger group than shown above, the Vice Principal admonishes the kids on the importance of being at school. He sneered into the microphone, “Why is it important to go to school kids? Because if you’re not at school….” And pointed the microphone to the couple hundred 6th graders so all the kids can drone back to him, “YOU’RE NOT LEARNING!!!!!!”
Well that’s some BULLSHIT! I expressed to a guidance counselor that my child has a 4.0 because he understands that learning happens EVERYWHERE, and that 6th graders shouldn’t be told lies at award assemblies. She rolled her eyes at me.
Yeah. Not loving WMS.
Shout out to the courageous.
Isaac Asimov in conversation with Bill Moyers about science, dogma, education, and creativity – a must-read.
Women use birth control for other purposes than preventing pregnancy. Married women use birth control. Women that could potentially die from pregnancy take birth control. Telling women not to have sex as if it is some magical solution is dangerous, misinformed and misogynistic. Women take birth control for a variety of reasons and not one of them is any of your damn business. Sit down and shut up.
Sneak peek; on 8th between Market & Mission.
