Topic #266:

If you could change how schools work, what would you change? What is wrong with how public education for kids is structured? What works well? What specific things about school do you remember, good and bad?

My mother took me on a bus downtown to the city school system of Clarksville Tennessee….It was scary …the school was big and so many new things to want to touch …. oh yeah I was still excited about riding on a big yellow bus…..we enter through the really large doors and there was a room full of people my size and age ….each one was talking to a grown up … fancy dressed lady they were …I don’t remember any men being there…..we were each told to pick a coloring stick of wax…. out of a very large bucket….then according to the color we picked we were told to go stand with the other children that had picked that color …then another fancy dressed lady took us and our color picked coloring sticks to another room…….in this room we were told to go to the front of the room and look at a board that had many large white cards with something written on them ….go stand under the one we like most ….if we didn’t move are understand one of the fancy dressed lady came and placed us under a card…….then we were all given a small box of coloring sticks and a tablet of paper with lines within lines and told to go home that we would get a letter telling us where we would be placed in school…..Not sure if my mother ever got a letter because we moved to the country after that….
