the problem with reading a good book is that you want to finish the book but you don’t want to finish the book

THIS WAS MY FAVORITE PART OF THE WHOLE MOVIE

"Thanks to a generation of massive amounts of standardized testing, our students conceive education primarily as a tool for determining a ranking. The Obama administration’s policy is even called Race to the Top. We have the most read columnist in the country telling us how important it is to raise “standards” so our students don’t fall behind.
For our students’ entire lives we have communicated that the reason to learn things is not to fulfill curiosities, but to see where you stack up relative to others. Grades are no longer a proxy for learning, but a lap time determining how well they’re doing at achieving a secure financial future. Under this system, a “B” is genuine cause for distress. A “C” is a disaster that points towards a ruined life.
At the same time, we have made it increasingly difficult to pay for a genuine education. The burden of loans threatens to strangle adult lives before they really begin. It is now impossible to work your way through college. Concerns over even paying for college are also at an all-time high. We communicate that a college degree is more important than ever and then make it more difficult to achieve.
Students look at the larger culture and see not a ladder of opportunity, but a treadmill of obligation. No wonder they’re distressed."

Oh my god, this is all I wanted from 3x15.

I would have given anything for a hospital scene. It would have been so beautifully painful.

OH LOOK, A FUCKING MANIP SET DONE BY A NORMAL PERSON WITH NO MONEY AND A FUCKING LAPTOP CAN DO A BETTER JOB THAN THE I-HAVE-MONEY-EVEN-IN-MY-ASS GLEE WRITERS AND A FUCKING HOLLYWOOD CREW. LOOK.
OH MY GOD. LOOK.
