Wow. This has to be one of the most powerful and poignant images I've seen in a long time. It saddens me to no end how much enrichment has been slowly removed from our education system. Sure, math, reading and science are important. But we are creating human beings, not robots. Let them be creative and use their minds in other ways too. (Ok, I'll get off my soapbox now.)


This is painful to watch. I really hope these kids maximize their potentials. As teachers, it our role to encourage them to hone their skills and not box them in a certain academic pattern. To each his own, we should remember that.


As a music teacher I feel this daily. I was told by my principal that 45% of my evaluation is based if the SAT writing score of the students. Then I was instructed to have them write 5 paragraph essays to help enhance their scores. What about the standards that I need to cover. Then he said that the writing is more important…. So sad…


no child left behind ended in 2015.

No it hasn’t it’s very much enforced and to add insult to injury there is House Bill 4545 to go along with it.


This is the reality. That is why I don't give too much homework or activities. I just let them enjoy the class while learning something new.

Sad to see this happening. But I do consider that the policy has no ill intent. There is just a problem with the implementation. Pair that with the teacher shortage and you have a recipe for disaster

A parent of one of my students told admin she thinks it's irresponsible that I won't be grading over Christmas break. I let the students know to get any work they need graded in before the break and I'll get it to it during our workdays in January. Apparently that's not fast enough for her 🙄. Is it wrong that I'm sort of pissed off by this? Should I say something?


At one point did you tell the firm you/your SO was pregnant?


Girlfriend has very obvious high functioning anxiety and body image issues that she admits but thinks she doesn’t need therapy or medication and that reading self-help books will help her. It’s not changing in the last several years and it’s impacting our relationship. Anyone have experience with their SO dealing with untreated anxiety? I know I can’t control her but would like to express my feelings without sending her into a spiral. For context, I’ve been in therapy for 12 months and medicated


I am an unmarried working man in his 30s with a southern mother. In other words I'm flying home for Christmas and my mother just called to tell me that she just happened to accidentally run into the sweetest girl from her church that she just knows I'll get along with and accidentally invited her to our house for dinner the night that I get home. Deadass the woman will not rest until I am tied down. Pray for me!

I’m jealous of my husband’s work situation. He is in a non tech role at FAANG and makes the same as me ~$200k but works about 20-40 hours a week and then spends the rest of the time napping, & watching tv. He gets his work done quickly, attends meetings and has really great relationships to where people think he’s a superstar. To be fair, when things hit crunch time, he’s working hard and late hours, but it’s definitely a more balanced life. Are all faang companies work/life balance like this?


Anyone here have ADHD or an ADHD partner? How has working from home affected you?

My partner was diagnosed a few years ago and we are making slow but steady progress on him articulating how that affects his behaviour, and how things that most people consider easy can be super hard for ADHD folks. He says forced WFH makes it even harder.

My workload is a lot lighter than his so I'd like to be able to do my best to support him.


If a child got injured in an amusement park (due to a negligence on the park's side) what would you consider a reasonable compensation?
