So, yesterday HannahC was getting home schooled, and she was complaining that she wanted to go outside and play instead. Here is what transpired:
HannahC: "I want to go outside an play. Why can't we have recess first?"
The Mrs.: "If you were at school, you wouldn't get to have recess first thing in the morning."
HannahC: "Why not?"
The Mrs.: "Because the teacher is held accountable [for your learning]."
"The teacher is held accountable." It still kills me!
