Alyssa is seven years old, her signature is amazing! My high school students can’t sign their names much better.

The sad fact is we’re grooming a new generation of voters who cannot execute a signature.

{Re: comments about how students just need to “follow directions”} This infuriates me! Why are we so obsessed with kids “following directions?!” Where’s the creativity? Passion? Exploration?

“Real life” (meaning nice careers, good degrees) does not want little brainwashed minions who only do what they’re told. What are we setting the next generation up for?!
