Quality Education



I graduated early. By the time I was 18, I already had a diploma. I worked for a prominent “businessman” as a writer and I was his favorite employee because he was “amused” at the fact that an 18-year-old girl is writing for him.

When I told him I wanted to try teaching college and that I am taking up my MA, he recommended me to a university. I was excited in my first day. 


It was an all-girl university. I asked the students to write, in a sheet of paper, the books they have read that was not required by their school. Out of 40 students, only three wrote down something. The rest submitted their papers blank.

You gotta be f*ckin’ kiddin’ me.

They haven’t even read Little Prince, don’t push your luck with Catcher in the Rye. You’ll be delusional to even ask about To Kill a Mocking Bird.


I asked if they know who  Zues is. They said yes. I asked who is Zeus’ father, someone blurted out “not my dad”.

They thought Achilles Heel is Achilles Hill. They didn't even know why a marathon is 42 kilometers.


They don’t know the meaning behind the title “The Woman With Two Navels”.

I asked them how many senators we have, they answered 12.
 
I hope none of them breeds.
