State of Education Part 2
In the Exceptional Student Services Department in the school I work at, students come in for help completing their assignments. One of the kids is very, very quiet. With heavy lidded eyes he looks like he is about to fall asleep after eating an enormous Thanksgiving dinner. "You are so quiet, Lon" says one of the teachers. "Don't you ever say anything". "How about if you just say 's***' once in awhile so we know you are alive"?
