Walked out this morning, don't believe what I saw - a hundred billion bottles (The Police)

Back in the day (1973)... 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!
