i hate mondays. and i'm kinda not really fond of tuedsays either. especially this tuesday, as tomorrow is my appointed day to go to the principal's office and justify my failure rate, because you know, failure is not an option. except, well, it kinda is since people choose it all the time. and we still have the grade on report cards and things.
 
i can teach. i can teach anyone who wants to learn. i can even make people who thought they didn't like learning or history rethink that. but i can't learn for them and i can't make them learn if they truly have chosen not to. there has to be an alternative for those people choosing that path. 

producing a generation of students who choose not to learn or choose to fail because they will not/cannot choose to engage is a cultural and a social issue that cannot be remedied in the twelve weeks i have a student in my room.

i need some help there.
