The following diary entry may turn out to be unnecessarily rude to random groups
of students in high school, including special needs kids, French Immersion kids and
kids taking hospitality class. I mean no offense to them; just to the God damn
administration who freaking ADORES them way too much. However, if you are easily
offended, don't read on.
So, these are my conclusions on the school system.
-Fundraising for music therapy programs for special needs children is good (I
actually do support this, but I think it's the ONLY ONE on this list).
-Funraising for sports is good.
-Fundraising for better art supplies is good.
-Fundraising for My Parents Are Jesus Freaks Anonymous (aka Peer Ministry) is good.
-Fundraising for better resources for enriched students, especially in elementary
schools, is bad, because it sends the message that certain students are better
-Special needs kids are allowed to take the attendance down, collect recycling bins
and do environmental clean-up.
-Peer ministry can miss as much class as they want, because anytime is Jesus time.
-It is totally okay to have an entire school built around kids who think they're
going to be Hollywood actors but have a 96% chance of ending up working some crappy
desk job, and to allow said kids to miss a crap load of school to travel around doing
-Jocks can skip school whenever they want. They're jocks, duh.
-All extracurricular assignments/learning opportunities that have to do with the
enriched program must take place during class time, because it is not fair to allow
enriched students to miss learning when other kids have to be in class.
-It is okay to have field trips for academic streamed students only (aka decidedly
-Special needs kids can have whatever the
fuck heck they want, okay? Get it
through your head. They want to go to Timbuktoo, they get to go to Timbuktoo!
-Band trip is cool.
-French Immersion trip is cool.
-Peer Ministry retreat is cool, because anytime is Jesus time.
-Friggin hospitality trip to friggin Niagara Falls (which has nothing to do with the
God damn waste of a class that hospitality is, by the way) is cool.
-A grade nine and ten enriched trip to Toronto, for only two nights, with minimal
fundraising allowed, which two young teachers have put a month and a half into
planning because they care about their students and want to offer them the unique
experience that they deserve for working so hard to reach their goals? ABSOLUTELY
NOT. It's not fair to discriminate like that.
I AM SO PISSED RIGHT NOW LIKE YOU LITERALLY HAVE NO IDEA. LIKE I WANNA KILL
SOMEBODY. I WANTED TO GO SEE WICKED; I WANTED TO SEE LEONARDO DICAPRIO'S IMAX MOVIE;
I WANTED TO HANG OUT WITH MY BEST FRIENDS IN CANADA'S BIGGEST AND GREATEST CITY; I
WANTED TO SHOP AT THE EATON CENTER; I WANTED TO GO THE SCIENCE CENTRE AND THE
MUSEUMS, BUT I CAN'T BECAUSE I'M ACTUALLY FUCKING SMART AND AM ACTUALLY GOING TO
CONTRIBUTE TO THE FUCKING SOCIETY THAT IS TAKING AWAY EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE WORKED
SO HARD FOR AND RIGHTFULLY DESERVE!!!!! I SUPPOSE THEY'LL USE THE MONEY FOR ANOTHER
FUCKING PERK FOR SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS, OR MAYBE COOKING CLASS.
My current Facebook status:
...wants to know why it is okay to single out groups of students for speaking
French, having special needs, being in band, actually taking a class in school to
learn how to make food, or just generally being average, but it is not okay to reward
kids for being smart? *Hates 'political correctness' and everything that it stands
for, and is in a bad mood right now.*
