My teen delights in provoking her teachers with her unconventional views. On Thursday one of her teachers asked if she had been at the G20 protests. My teen couldn’t come, partly because we had the French exchange student staying. Not sure what this student thought when I texted:
“Probably won’t be home in time to make dinner, held in kettle by police, might be arrested”.
“protesting should be banned!”
“Biology?” I exclaim “how did you do that?”
“There was this test question on the necessary elements for plants to grow. I answered it correctly, sunlight, water, etc but then I put ‘This is not scientifically proven but another component helping plants to grow is love’. The teacher gave me zero even though I had everything right.”
“I told him I thought it was unfair. He said that it irritated him so he gave me zero”.
