School Daze - Poem by Sister Joyce Schladweiler

Heartsick, unto death,
Must dedicated teachers be.

What negativism, or lies "en masse"
In varied forms and shapes,
Against schools - American.

Are basic reason ever sought?
Can a resistant learner
Ever be taught?

Is blame put
>DD>Where blame should be?
"Band aids" cure not;
So what shall it be?

Make our schools, schools;
Use radical surgery, if need be.
Cut out all, that belongs elsewhere.

Make our homes, homes,
Cradles of example-teaching;
Modeling constantly.

Inject back into society,
"Old-fashioned" values,
Cast out deliberately.
