Would You Teach This Student?

Here is a picture of my 17-year-old daughter Kalypso.
Kalypso
For wearing this outfit, she was pulled out of all of her classes at Lusher Charter High School and she spent the day in the dean's office doing nothing but sitting in a chair and contemplating her poor behavior. She was also prevented from attending her college credit French class at Tulane University. She was supposed to go to detention this afternoon and again miss her French class. I told her to skip the detention and go to her class. I'm fully aware that there is value in learning to navigate through situations where difficult people throw up hurdles. So there are three months left in her senior year, and she has learned a valuable lesson in that someone at Lusher prefers jeans. This all reminds me of why I hated high school. I loved college though. Hope she does too.

School is a sort of purgatory people must endure until adults deem them tame enough to start learning.

Wowza, is Fontenot, formerly the fashion police of Ben Franklin, now at Lusher? What exactly was deemed wrong with her outfit? She looks totally covered to me.

It is pretty difficult sometimes to teach such students which has complex mind. I am right here to accept your challenge and teach such students. Some people always worried about writing assignments and essay papers so they can write my paper about online writers as it is the best option to feel free from such worries.
