Married to a middle-school teacher, Leaning Towards the Dark Side has come up with an alternative for unmotivated students who waste the time of teachers and classmates. They’d get to start early on career training.
This special classroom would be equipped with a cash register, a cooking surface, a deep fryer, a soda fountain, and a system that offers orders for the students to fill correctly. The kids would be graded on their ability to operate the equipment, and tests would include simulated customer orders. Additional equipment would include mops and brooms, which they would use to clean up the room at the end of the class. Extra credit could be offered for asking â€œwould you like fries with that, maâ€™am?â€ or â€œBiggie size, sir?â€
If you want kids to be scared smart (or smarter) make them train to be telemarketers.
