Perspectives: 5/365

The kids grow older together,
The adults grow old together,
The teachers get older,
Faculties turn over,
And the whole machine keeps going.

However, the reputations stay the same,
A kid in kindergarten might act a way,
They could be seen that way throughout their school-aged years,
Parents might have attitudes about schools,
Positive, negative, demanding, or laissez-faire
Then they talk to other parents
And the mill starts churning
Causing a new perception about the schools, the teachers, the climate of learning,
Sometimes positive, sometimes negative, sometimes demanding or hands off
Teachers might think a way
Limiting the potential of education
Which is rich in opportunity if not bound by red tape
Or the unruly perceptions heaped upon schools.
Often teachers get stuck between survival and nobleness
Never really able to act out the dream of education
Being a universal value
Accepted for its purposefulness and practicality.

The kids grow older together,
The adults grow old together,
The teachers get older,
Faculties turn over,
And the whole machine keeps going.
