We just finished a unit on studies in my college now class and we spent quite a bit of time talking about goals and questions, particularly about the way these things are worded to sway answers.
Today I posed Mr. AP's goal to the class, without telling them where the goal came from:
The teacher will have 80% of her class pass the regents exam.
The kids were up in arms with this goal. One said--what happened to the other 20%, don't they count? Another said--why has 20% been written off?
These kids are a lot more on the ball than Mr. AP. Maybe they should be running the department.
The kids are the best. We should eliminate the mayor's office and let them run the entire city.
