The rantings of a teacher who retired from the classroom but not from education.

At a nearby Queens high school students were told NOT to bring calculators to the Algebra/Trigonometry regents. Being good students, they obeyed.
At the same Queens high school mentioned above, the administration was NOT prepared to distribute calculators to all the students who showed up to take the Algebra/Trigonometry regents. Some waited over an hour for a calculator to be given to them.
On a more positive note, most of the students at Packemin HS had their own calculators and for those who did not, Mr. AP was well prepared with calculators for all.
