Tuesday musings – 12/4/2012

“Of all the animals, the boy is the most unmanageable.” — Plato

“Schoolboys are a merciless race; individually they are angels, but together, especially in schools, they are often merciless.” — Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

“Boys are beyond the range of anybody’s sure understanding, at least when they are between the ages of 18 months and 90 years.” — James Thurber

“Every genuine boy is a rebel and an anarch.” — John Andrew Holmes

And that sums up my experience teaching 25 fourth-grade boys today.
