School vs Education. 0.7.
Hi guys! How’s it hanging in your neck of the woods‽ Still on school vs education. Let’s pick it up where we left off.
P.S: If you haven’t read the prequel, please click on here to.
Anyway, let’s get right to it.
School vs Education (Continuance)
But with evidence like that, I must ask:
Do you prepare students for the future or the past?
I did a background check on you
and let the records show that you were made

or snapback hats, giving them this “one size fits all” crap‽

Each one having different strengths, different needs,
different gifts, different dreams,
and you teach the same thing the same way?
Ladies and gentlemen, the defendant should not be acquitted,
this may be one of the worst criminal offences ever to be committed.
And let’s mention the way you treat your employees
