30 Students Quoted: What a Perfect School Should Be

MissCal.Q.L8 | Teaching

Quote #30

“School would make people forget their problems at home and would make them feel peace and tranquility.”

It made me sad to see how many of these things listed are things we say (as teachers) we are doing. All in all, if you look at these requests, almost all of them are perfectly reasonable and easily possible. They are asking for so little. Ok, so maybe I won’t be driving to school in my helicopter to meet with Mr. Flav, but you get the idea. Why don’t we ask the kids what will help them and then do it?

If we aren’t going to change anything, then why do we ask?

Editor’s Note: Use this activity as a writing assignment or journal assignment for students. If you want to learn more about what your students think but don’t want to spend a lot of time on it, use this activity as a filler lesson when you only have a five minutes left at the end of class. Write answers on the board and discuss!
