I, Anonymous: It’s Elementary—The Final Cry

posted by on June 29 at 17:00 PM

Welcome to closing installment of the I, Anonymous: It’s Elementary day-long bonanza, wherein a new I, Anonymous submission sent in by students at a local alternative elementary and middle school is revealed every hour on the hour. Thank you all for playing, please enjoy this final offering from an anonymous class clown.

Dear teachers who give out home work,

I think that you should NOT give out homework any more. Homework is something that most kids do not enjoy, and while it may be good for us the students it is something that we will not stand for it. They shouldn’t need to waste time at their desk (one kept at home of course), with pen and peper, or in front of a computer, losing the time that they could spend at home with their family or doing something that they can actually enjoy. It is unneeded and sometimes can create big arguments between members in a family. For insttance we might not turn work in when it is due. Also it is not always the child with the works fault. We will sometmime think that you don’t give out hard work but lots of small assignments. When you add all the time up it is pretty close to equal the time that we spend doing the hard assignments. Sometimes it will get lost because we had to ahil it around with us and it would be very simple to lose. Sometimes you just give work that is too hard and then when it is late and graded down you don’t have the right to grade us down. We think this because sometimes you give the assignment at a time that is too close to the due date. If you want them to get a better education then try and teach them in class. The kids are young and they will learn about the work that you teach them. They don’t need to spend less time in freedome, but they should be allowed to do what they want in their free time and stop them from thinking that doom (from an angry family) is much too close.

Dear anonymous student: Thank you for providing a suitably chilling ending to today’s bonanza. (And if your family ever gets too angry, please tell someone.) Everyone else, enjoy your weekend, and your freedom from homework.
