It's school survey time again. The parent coordinator was distributing them as I left yesterday. She stressed how important it is that we all fill them out. She assured me of my anonymity.
I don't care about being anonymous. When I have something to say, I say it loud and clear and never worry about who knows what I said.
I told her I haven't decided if I am going to fill out the survey or not. I am against the whole idea of school ratings and report cards. The rebel in me wants to do away with these useless pieces of paper. I know I can't change the system alone, but I have to start. Filling out the form is the equivalent of selling out, something I don't know if I want to do.
(NOTE TO HULA: Don't worry, I already mailed my form and since I was too lazy to read it, I filled it out as suggested. A short faculty meeting and a good lunch goes a long way towards making me cooperative.)
