I spent fifty-five minutes in your class,
And I want to actually learn something,
Not just pass.
I am more than a score in your book,
I have bigger goals than just making our school look good.
I knew all the answers,
Now can we go do something useful like curing cancer?
Check this out!
I read the entire chapter,
Let's express our opinions because I think they matter.
What's up with this?
Why must we measure intelligence with standardized testing,
Aren't understanding and discussing more important than guessing?
Listen to me!
Through the system I feel like I am shuffled,
My individuality and thoughts constantly muffled!
