Why I Hate School but Love Education

This poem perfectly encapsulates our failing "education" system. It reminds me of what I, as a teacher, am fighting against. But more importantly, what I'm fighting for.

Welcome to Poetry Club!

This is a space where you can feel at ease
express your joy, sorrow, thoughts and beliefs
 through a poetic piece
perhaps you can achieve
 some inner peace

no judgement in the air 
show love everywhere
open-your mind
see life through others's eyes
transform your words into art
give insight into your heart

this is your stage, your platform, your spotlight
"now you're in the limelight, cus you rhyme tight"

let your voice be heard
let your heart be shown
get ready for your minds to be blown

i'm excited for this year
and you should be too
Welcome to the family
Luh, Ms. Wu
