My only thought at the end of that episode..
Exactly what I felt at the end of that episode!! YA DO FEEL ME!
As if your teacher doesn’t realize
everyone has their phones under their desks,
but he’s underpaid and overworked and
his whole world runs on plausible deniability,
so he shouts state-mandated, pass the test,
teach-to-the-middle nonsense at students
who are not at all fooled
by his false enthusiasm or false mathematics and
he pretends he’s teaching algebra and
the students pretend to be taught algebra and
everyone else involved in the system
is too invested to do anything
but pretend to believe them both."
