Time to be Random

Link up with Stacy!
It's state assessment time in Texas.  Oh, joy! (sarcasm)  Do you know who actually writes these tests?  Do you oppose or support letting parents decide whether their child opts out of a state math or reading test?  Did you know the tests are required by federal law?  Do you oppose or support using state testing results as part of a student's graduation plan? And do you have any idea how many of your tax dollars support state assessments?

Teachers are working harder and harder when it should be the students working harder.  If a student doesn't pass a state test, who works harder to help them pass?  We do! The teachers!  We work our rears off before, during, and after school (all year long) trying to make lessons relevant and fun.  We want our students to succeed. Why aren't the students working harder, too?  Okay.  Rant over.

New topic:  Books.  I just finished reading The Alienist.  It seemed to take forever!  Not because it was bad, but it was long.  And written with a higher-than- normal vocabulary.  But I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I do and I don't want to watch the series now.  I do because I really liked the characters and the story line, and I'm interested in watching what they do.  I don't because I have a vision of the characters in my head, and the show may not live up to that vision.  Oh, the dilemma!

I've just started watching a series on Netflix called Mindhunter.  I didn't care for the first episode or two because the acting was so bad.  It either grew on me or the actors got better (haha) because it's interesting how the FBI began profiling and catching serial killers.  Macabre? Maybe.  But entertaining, too.

But before I go, let's laugh!

I don't know why, but this one cracked me up so much!
