The Current State of Education (Day 25, 2016)

Day 25 of NaPoWriMo.

The Current State of Education

students test on computers
1200 kids logging on
to show the state
that learning has occurred
in a school built 60 years ago
and never properly converted
to the technological standards
of 2005
and nothing goes as planned
some machines don’t work
the procedure is unclear
even the administrators can’t explain
how things work 
and worse:
they’ll be taking these tests
every day 
for the rest 
of the 
motherfucking
year
so real learning
will occur only by
accident
when good teachers
crawl out from under 
all of this bullshit
long enough to
actually do their
real jobs
so tell me again
about how it’s unions
destroying education
