    Fiddler crab

    Wow. Let us hope and pray that our society never goes so far to try and thwart imagination. However, there are those who would wish it so. Some teachers today do not allow students to use their imaginations. If some "educators" have their way, our future could very well be like that described in this story. I will highly recommend this story to all who will listen. My grandchildren have teachers who are so concerned with their tenure and government controlled testing that nothing else matters. The children are herded through school like cattle going to slaughter.. Let us all teach children that the human mind has infinite possibilities.,........

    Excellent

    Any teacher in a public school system in the USA today will tell you that this is the direction the government wants education to go in. Teachers are treated like idiots who are told EXACTLY what to teach, how to teach it, and when to teach it. They are not allowed to use their own judgement anymore about the best way to get a message through to the children. They are told that corporate geniuses know what is best for the children far better than a teacher who has spent the better part of their life with children. Wake up people this book is not fiction it is our future if we dont stop it! Dr. G

    AMAZING!! JMM44

    This author can say so very much in a few short paragraphs!! This one imagines what schools would be like with more regulations and absolutely forbids any kind of learning other than what some self appointed "higher ups" have decided upon!!!
