Ithink a lot of people think my generation don’t care about politics or aren’t interested. They underestimate how perceptive we are. We’re part of the world too. We sit in classrooms. We know that schools don’t have proper funding and that our teachers aren’t properly paid for the hard work they do.
Teachers should have better working conditions. They are teaching the next generation to move academically through the world, and they deserve to live and work comfortably.
My school feels different at the moment. Maybe it’s a result of my having moved into year 9, a step closer to GCSEs, or maybe it’s something that other young people are experiencing.
It’s been a lot colder in my classrooms, because the central heating is turned on less frequently due to bills going up. Leaks have appeared in some of our classroom ceilings. Students take good care of the school, but we can’t do repairs. There also seem to be fewer classroom materials. Maybe this is what happens when you go up a year, or maybe they cost too much?
Both we and you have identified that you know something between little and not enough. That’s why you’re in school, to have knowledge poured into you.
Thus your analysis of what might be wrong with the world, what could be done to rectify such errors, might be lacking a little. Possibly?
