I can see the psyche of our youth being crushed
Every time someone says they’re incapable or not good enough.
By adults that they’re told to trust.
Only eleven years old being told by
supposed mentors and educators to not even try.
“They’re not capable, let us not challenge their minds.”
Is this why society is dwindling?
Education is one of the foundations of our very being and the priorities are all in the wrong places.
I can see it in their defeated faces.
Defeated as a result of unnecessary, inaccurate low expectations
from their “guides” cultivating low esteem into the hearts of others.
But more importantly, I see seats filled with potential-ridden, curious bodies.
Truth and beauty above all else.
I’m an educator, not a test-giver.
I refuse to live by the limitless boundaries placed on adolescent horizons by the truly incapable.
Incapable of stepping outside of the box we call a “rubric” and into the real world.
Tired of everything outside the guidelines
being dismissed as a waste of time.
The curriculum needs to be severely revised.
