Jamie gives voice to some things that've been grinding her gears for a while....and that formula in that book looks familiar...

The print campaign is still LIVE. Just click on "the creator" tabs for links. :)

Thanks; I've been practicing different angles. :)

She's no scientist, but stuff like this are basic lessons at GS school. XD

Geez, lady, take a chill pill. God, I may not have had detention in High school, but even the teacher there was more kind than you! Did you forget your medicine or something?
KarToon12 20th May 2013, 2:28 PM edit delete reply
I never had detention either, but I've heard from more than a few people at my school that it was exactly like this. :(

"just like my commanding officer, only less green".
Now there's a line you don't hear every day.

Yep; remember, she's from outer space. XDXD We'll actually get to see her commanding officer in the next season.

The rules of today's schools are getting more and more rigid. Probably the reaction to terrorist activity (as well as gang activity), but I'm not sure it's a positive change. Heightened security can keep children (or young adults) safer, but so much freedom is being lost. In this district, parents can't just come to the principal's office for a routine visit, and young adults can't even take a cough drop on their own. Everything has to be behind locked doors and everyone has to be buzzed in. When my kids were in high school, the parents weren't even allowed to leave their car when picking them up at the end of the day. You had to sit in your car (in the parking lot) and wait for your teenager to come to you. If they didn't see you drive up, you sat there and waited until enough cars left for them to see you. I rarely refer to my youth as the 'good old days', but I have to admit that the school system was a lot more 'human' in those days. Even so, they had their problems then too. It just seems that we could reach a happy medium somewhere.

When I was in pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade, I went to an awesome school. (It was probably not as awesome as I remember, and even if it was, it's almost certainly gotten MUCH worse than it was when I was there. It was a loooooong time ago, after all. :P)

There were huge tires kids could hang out under. There were also smaller tires as part of the playground. The field was awesome (the rules were whatever the kids wanted them to be), but most importantly of all, we had our own personal forest in the playground, which I loved to be it.

And all of it with virtually no moderation.

...Then I moved. To a school which--by comparison--was tyrannical. Strict rules on how to play games on the field, a huge hill which children weren't allowed to go up on, strict rules enforced ruthlessly on things like swing usage, and in spite of having dozens of adults around who would answer the whims of any child lying about their experience to gain an advantage, there was still plenty of bullying which all those rules were meant to prevent. (Especially verbal bullying--you can be assaulted with words and have them be more scarring than any physical blow.)

(Oh, and busses. At my old school, I walked to school. At the new school, for the first time ever, I was exposed to busses, and learned they ALSO had a bunch of rules, to which I said "screw that!" and actively tried to mess with, because I hated that discrimination, as I saw it.)

...Needless to say, I got out of there FAST. Like, seriously, it was a torture chamber to me. It wasn't a healthy environment, and the toxicity was evident in my descriptions to my parents, who recognized the DANGER (and I do mean danger) in keeping me there.

So we left, home-schooling at first before eventually moving into a hybrid school which gave the best of both worlds. :P

Plain and simple, there's a huge dissonance in what people think schools need to be and what schools actually need to be.

The more the noose is tightened, the more the environment begins to slip into a degenerative status.

Children don't need to be dictated. They're not meant to be parts put through a rigid assembly line. And forcing down their throats all these rules will traumatize them for life, creating issues down the road.

Children need to be guided. That's how I ended up being raised, and it worked out wonderfully.

You need to point them in the right direction, encourage them to do good and discourage them to do bad--not give them rules which say they MUST be good and that they CAN'T be bad.

/could rant all day.

...Needless to say, I'm in agreement. Schools are getting worse and worse, not better and better, because of this completely and totally wrong mindset. Short of a paradigm shift, it's not going to get better.

All it does is breed the hostility seen in the teacher above.

I came up in an environment where the teachers treated me as if I were their own child, with love, care, encouragement, attention, and only when required a firm hand.

And THAT is what our schools need.

...um...wow? XDXD

Those are all amazing and good points there. And I went through a similar thing (mostly in middle school). I got bullied alot, but most of the time, the bullies got punished, without being taught what real harm their actions were doing. And it got to the point that I think some of them did bad things on purpose just so they could get suspended and get out of class. Pretty soon, "punishments" became "get out of jail free" cards. :/

I could go on and on, but bottom line, I think both adults AND the youth need to be taught to just be more caring and respect one another, period. It's not really the rules that need to change, it's the people who have to.

Yeesh, even my school wasn't that strict in that regard. People coming INTO the school still had to be checked in, but pretty much anyone could roam around outside on the field or in the parking lot. It might've helped that my HS was in between a neighborhood, and alot of the people living there used the school as a shortcut through, instead of driving around the long way. So most people knew one another.

Still, it would be great to find some way of keeping everyone safe, without it spiraling to the point of ridiculousness. :/

Poor JJ! :(

And that teacher, geez, what the hell happened to her? Did she even sleep last night?

Where on earth is Tyler? He should be in his seat by now!!!
KarToon12 20th May 2013, 2:44 PM edit delete reply
Either that, or she's mad she got interrupted while reading her book. Twilight is SUCH a facinating book after all...XDXDXD

We'll see him in a second. ;)

KarToon12 20th May 2013, 2:45 PM edit delete reply
In the earlier seasons, we just get hints of it. We WILL eventually see it, just farther down the line.

Wow! I love this page, because it really reminds me of the classic sci fi flicks, I said it before but Ill say it agian! Touching on social commentary with aliens/monsters/ or other dimensional beings was a classic move in those movies! :D
KarToon12 21st May 2013, 2:17 PM edit delete reply
Thanks! And yeah; that's partly how the original Star Trek was created. They wanted to have social commentary, so they put it in the disguise of aliens, robots, and spaceships. :)

Jamie, mind tutoring me? I bet you can make Physics look easy! -waves hand in the air eagerly-
Though that would be frusturating, trying to blend in immediately on a planet that you just visited. You have my sympathies JJ. -pats her on the back-

JJ: I've never taught anyone before, but I'll try. :)

Yep. Originally, she didn't have the intention of staying here. She was just here to fight/capture the bad guy, then leave. Her ship blowing up kind of killed that plan, needless to say. So now she's here to stay.
