How many points does this get?

Last year, my job was threatened when I wrote poetry about the Standardized Testing climate of our tiny charter school as evidence of a nationwide problem in education. My poems contained cryptic references to the content for one excerpt of one reading. I was reprimanded. Those poems are still in the shadows, gathering dust and legend. But I am no less inspired to…go there.

This year I will be chronicling The Tests with a poem a day exploration in March. I know my career will be safe this year. I know my limits. But there is a story worth capturing during these months.

There are less than ten school days left in February which means I have some time to offer some other school related content before my mighty task.

Keep you posted. Share away so no one misses a verse!
