yes children, remember, there is only School. no rest. what does “physical and mental wellbeing” mean
what the actual fuck
what is this fixation with productivity holy shit
"No fellow citizen #45465, you may not sit down for a break, you must meet your labour quota for this hour or you will forfeit your productivity ”bonus” pay. Produce and consume, Fellow Citizens!”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stakhanovite_movement I’m just gonna leave this here.
The fixation with productivity is that a lot of kids haven’t yet learned the skills on how to manage themselves and their work. I have really self-aware students, and the first week I asked what they need to work on and almost everyone said procrastination and time management. It’s a common issue, they know it’s a common issue, and it’s irresponsible to not make kids look at their own time and figure out the best way to use it.
This page doesn’t say SPEND ALL TIME ON SCHOOL. it says record HOW YOU SPEND YOUR TIME (like an hour nap - that might be very necessary, but you need to know to build it in if so) — not as a way to monitor, but as a way for the kid to learn what his or her own schedule is like.
And it’s okay to spend some time being “unproductive” but a LOT of kids (and adults) spent way more time with these things than they should and then they come in crying that they couldn’t finish the work. Instead of saying, “That’s your own damn fault,” this says, “Let’s figure out how you can actually make room to get your responsibilities met.”
I absolutely as a teacher (a) asked every parent to tell me what an average evening schedule is, because kids have different family commitments, commutes, bedtimes, etc, and (b) am making the kids record how long each homework takes them.
yes, of course time management is important, and of course it’s a skill that needs to be learned. no one is saying otherwise. but you can’t deny the fact that the general mindset in schools these days seems to be that your academics are more important and come before everything else. it’s not healthy. and telling kids to cut sleep out of their schedule in favor of studying is definitely not good.
i should also add that sitting down and rationally looking at how you spend your time and how you might improve was NOT what was happening in this class. there was no involvement from the teacher other than kids going up to him and asking “hey, is this productive?” and him responding with yes or no. i heard him say drawing was unproductive. this was a magnet arts school.
so yes, time management is important, but using flawed, one size fits all categorizations of productive and nonproductive, and then putting kids in the mindset that “unproductive” activities are to be avoided, is unhealthy and not helping with that.

the funniest thing is that the tattoo actually reads “part of an asshole race”
more accurate is “Member of asshole race”
you know what’s really sad to think about?
this is the shit john scrawled all over his walls when he was asleep as a kid and this is why john’s dad left him so many notes about how proud he was of him.
he just wanted his son to be proud of himself.
no no no it’s even worse because its written in the text colour of his friends
wow now i’m even more upset about this
I’m real tired of seeing skinny white kids painted as THE AVERAGE QUEER. Like please show me a curvy Indian agender kid from Brooklyn, a hispanic lesbian and her black girlfriend. A trans demisexual dude from Korea. GIVE ME SOMETHING OTHER THAN LANKY PALE PEOPLE WITH COLORFUL HAIR PLEASE GOD.
