Gone are the days

I don’t want to turn this into a teacher blog but it’s going to be from time to time.

We had a faculty meeting tonight and our administrator said “Gone is the generation of kids who did things because they are supposed to.  This generation won’t do anything just because they’re supposed to, so we have to work around that.”

My question is…. why are those students gone?  In what ways has our society changed so that this is now the norm?  Is it because few people have learned to take responsibility for their actions?  Have our children watched us passing the buck a few too many times?  Or is it something else?

Where are those children and how do we get them back?  Can we get them back?
