It’s All Useless!

Or so this bycicle taxi pilot seems to believe…
It's All Useless!

Sometimes, teaching these young ladies, I think I know just how he feels.

Never mind, this is the first day of the last week of term; my last week teaching at this place. I absolutely won’t do it any more. At the end of this term I feel as if I have put a trememdous effort into teaching the ladies Javascript and Unix, they have changed their behaviour in class a bit, but very litle of what I have actually been teaching has sunk in. Now, with the exams looming large on the horizion (Javascript is on the first day of exams, next Tuesday) the only thing anyone can do is cram so that they can download. Pointless. I feel as if anyone who cannot pass from their own understanding alone, ought to fail. No college should be giving out certificates for memorising facts. But the University writes exams that allow just that: “Define the five major …, List the factors affecting…., explain three ….., differentiate between……”. A baboon with a biro and a cassette recorder could pass this shit. :plain:
