CCRs dwT #31: School Daze

Dylan sez…
(a short and timely jotting for CCR twits Tweeters)


dwT #31:   It appears that Irving ISD teachers will not have all of the curriculums completed for the year when school starts this week.   As a public service, a non-consulting-fee solution will be offered to the district for a savings of $99,999.98 to correct this problem.  

Backstory clue for the information impaired:   (CCRs Curriculum Solution)  In lieu of having the curriculums, teachers could start the year teaching the following to their students: no bullying, no cursing; no classroom clowns; no jive talk; how to add and subtract without removing your shoes; how to correctly pronounce monosyllabic words; how to write a thank you note; how to pick up a current novel and read the entire book (no Cliff Notes); how to read a newspaper and write a report on a current event using correct grammar; the need to park cell phones or other Internet devices for a full day once a week and communicate face-to-face with friends and family; know who the local and state representatives -- who are taxing their parent(s) for their education -- are; demonstrate that there are better role models than drug fueled athletes; how to dress like a student and not a rock band roadie; how to spend quality time doing something for someone else without the expectation of being paid.

Irving ISD teachers require community support.  The teaching trenches are stocked full of non-educational alligators and other swamp creatures that should be drained and eliminated from the system.  Often a thankless job, teachers toil long and hard with little recognition, or assistance.  Teachers fully understand their role and what the future will be if kids are not properly educated, responsible for their behavior and have a desire to seek a future that could be gratifying.  Do your part in this critical community role.  Adopt a teacher.  Adopt a school for volunteer work.  Adopt an attitude that Irving’s future citizens require your assistance.  Consider mentoring a struggling student.  Do something except complain when the nightly news reflects that another imbecilic student-thug has beaten or shot someone because they were “bored.”

A note from counsel: Some “Tweets” from Dylan Westie have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles….Mark Holbrook
