Why won't these children listen?
They are constantly talking oblivious of the fact that their education is going down the drain.
Can't they see the opportunity that they have been given to elevate themselves?
Can't they see that some underpriviledged or unfortunate child would be glad to be in their position for just a day?
What a waste to plan a good lesson when you cannot execute it?
Sasha, Marie, Ann, Paul, Jerome SIT DOWN
Junior, DO not hit David with the ruler.
YES, yes, Monique, you may go to the restroom.
NO, no, Shanique, you may not sit in THAT seat!
