Text Animation Education
my favourite event is the yearly introduction to the change of class, when the drill sergeants appear. But if you think that they’re going to let Larry hang out there with the kind of self-confidence you’d expect from a drill sergeant, then you’re wrong.
Some of them are quite introverted and talk about sports halls, occupancy and so on. Or they nestle for minutes at the projector, which is supposed to throw the plan to the screen. No difference at all to the patients, even though they are part of the staff.
Every year I fall into the same trap and think that someone will get up and maybe let something like that out:
Hello dear worried ones of your beloved children. This year we want to get the children excited about learning. We will talk to them in foreign languages and have endless fun.
The universe will be our best friend because we will feel the breath of life in chemistry, physics and biology. In philosophy and religion we will trace the meaning of our existence and in German we will shed tears of happiness over the beauty of our language.
Mathematics will show us the elegance and power of our brains and in physical education we will have great fun moving our bodies. Ethnology will bring us closer to the foreign and show us how to treat each other with respect and friendship.
Finally, we will teach your children to make music free of charge and give our imagination free rein in painting. In the theatre we will rehearse plays and the common work on the incarnation will make us happy and weld us together in friendship forever and ever.
Instead I hear:
Tomorrow the books will be collected. Please give 40 Euro to your child. Next week we are going on a school trip to the fun pool. That costs 8 Euro. Then transfer 10 Euro. Copy money until next week and buy 30 booklets in the prescribed colours.
If a payment is missed, the child will have to go to detention or write bullshit 100 times. We can already guarantee you that the child will often come home crying because we have a curriculum to follow. It will be a damn difficult time for all of us.
God help us!
