Today the students at my school filled out an anonymous survey about how they feel about different aspects of the school, their teachers, and their education. It was a multiple choice style survey with a couple questions at the end that had a place to write in an answer.
I enjoyed glancing at their written-in answers to the question:
What do you wish were different about your school?
About half the kids wished for air conditioning. I can't blame them, I wish for it every year too.
Here are my favorite answers:
I wish there was less work and I didn't get in trouble as much (The second half of that sounds like a personal problem)
I wish I didn't get lunch detention because I cut in line at lunch (Again with the personal problems . . .)
I wish the people in it were different (I'm sorry we don't live up to your standards)
I wish the food was better- throw it away after a week (Do they think there are leftovers after feeding almost 1,000 people a day?)
How could you not love these kids? Or is the question: how COULD you love these kids?
