I Came for an Education

I came for an education,

Hoping to show my appreciation

For known and unknown creations,

But now I’m faced with the frustration

Of being stripped of my imagination

And stuffed with meaningless information

For which I have no fascination

All because teachers are forced to teach

To the standardized examination.

 

I came for an education,

But what I found

Was a host of regulations,

Not just rules, but a mutation.

One that forces instructors

To teach to a standardization

Robbing students of satiation

And leaving them with a salivation

For new information.

 

I came for an education,

But what I found

Was an abomination.
