|Back in the day (1973)...|
|...er...and now (2019)|
It's examination time.
As I did a recent exam invigilation I thought about what had changed since my days of sitting school exams.
- Pens writing on exam papers? check
- Times written on a board? tick
- Rows of desks? you bet
- Quiet students? check
As I did this mental tick box, I realised that only one thing had changed.
Every student had a water bottle on their desk from which they took a slurp every so often.
Apart from that though...
The tragedy of the last hundred or so years of education in NZ has been THAT NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
It's crazy. Crazy, I tell you!
