This week has been Parent / Teacher Interviews at my 2 dementors school, which we will refer to as Grim P.S to protect its identity.
I always considered ‘interviews’ to be a strange word for these occasions, just who is Interviewing whom? It’s more like a review of your kid that takes place in miniature world.
Grown men (physically at least) and women sit on seats made for 6 years old’s, surrounded by colourful scribbles, a water table & a story corner, all whilst trying to convey an air of serious decorum throughout a discussion on the educational progress of your young.
And what’s with the blackboard or is it chalk board, maybe it’s just boards now. They are extinct, it’s all electronic dual purpose white boards connected to projectors. (Surely the name white boards is as problematic to the PC overlords as Blackboards?)
The kids can write on the board with their finger, no chalk required, which makes the famously chalk dust filled erasers something they will never know the joy of, well joy & terror.
Who doesn’t recall feeling one whizz by your head in the teachers effort to strike the chatty girl behind you, somewhere that wouldn’t show a bruise, so she would shut her gob long enough for the Adult in the room to dictate the latest block of text that everyone had to scribble into their jotters, in what was passed off as teaching on a Friday afternoon?
The modern World is filled with Technology, but not all of it is to our benefit. School Days are still the best days of your life, but in a way that today’s generation will never truly get to appreciate it
