Does the student know? Does the teacher know?
The lessons are many and days are few.
In the class, some are quick and some are slow.
Some will progress and some will make do.
People choose subjects without being sure.
They have no experience, only hope.
Teachers and students discuss and endure
problems and strategies to help them cope
with future events or recent mistakes.
Outside their campus, students use theory.
They use new knowledge to elaborate
and specialized language to query.
There is no way to measure their chances.
Even slow students will make advances.
