I’m grateful that I work in a school where I do not believe that any of these (updated) lyrics by Pikku Myy apply. Via the Blue Skunk blog.

 

What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
I learned that I must pass a test
To sort the learners from the rest
That winners win and losers lose
And TAKS test scores is how they choose
And that’s what I learned in school today
That’s what I learned in school

What did you learn in school today, dear little girl of mine?
What did you learn in school today, dear little girl of mine?
It matters what my parents earn
I’ll get better grades with cash to burn
If I don’t speak English I can’t be smart
And no more music and no more art
And that’s what I learned in school today
That’s what I learned in school

What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
Teachers fill my empty mind
So that I won’t be left behind
I’m learning how to play the game
And all right answers look the same
And that’s what I learned in school today
That’s what I learned in school

What did you learn in school today, dear little girl of mine?
What did you learn in school today, dear little girl of mine?
Learning’s just a job I do
From seven thirty til half-past two
And all my interests have to wait
‘Til I drop out or graduate
And that’s what I learned in school today
That’s what I learned in school

 

If they apply in your school, what are you going to do about it?
