I know we just posted a video clip featuring high school students rocking spoken word poetry, but I recently came across another terrific clip that's education-specific. It's a "Love Letter to Albuquerque Public Schools," a 2-minute performance by 4 students, and it's an amazing, visceral punch in the stomach to traditional education. It's a clarion cry for reform from passionate, talented, insightful students who are tired of being trapped in a broken system. Just a couple excerpts:
"No need for creativity here. Just fill in bubbles.....Regurgitate everything you've learned onto the answer sheet."
"When we're finally allowed to break away from our designated seats, we stretch our limbs in all directions. Our fists feeling FREE. Tuck that F-word into your file folder."
