Where are you when we need you Ayn?

I had a conversation with a fellow teacher of mine. He was catching all sorts of hell after sending out progress reports because you know kids were actually accountable for their actions and the grades that resulted from them.

I explained to him that in a country where the banks aren't responsible for the loans they originate and their parents aren't responsible for the lies they told to get them, that no one was going to hold a nine year old responsible for their own academic progress. This helped him understand. He can now properly shrug his shoulders and thus keep his job. I'm getting ready to shrug a bit myself. The looters are coming. What will they take from you?
