"Education works best when all the parts are working."

Arguably a rather correct representation of the school system. Teachers and students should work together, but then parents come in and jam up the entire system 😂

@fribbledom I got that pretty quickly thanks to my Lego experiments
@fribbledom tbh that's an accurate representation of what was going lately in education in Poland

only replace the blocking gear from parents to teachers mostly

@fribbledom ah so I'm not only one seeing the parents as the problem here

@fribbledom @nightpool I mean, bad teachers are as much a problem as bad parents, and once you get to high school the students aren’t blameless either, but at least teachers have a compelling reason to follow the syllabus

Source: my mom has been a high school teacher for almost 30 years and is thoroughly sick of it

@fribbledom
Yabbut... those gears can't turn at all. You'd think a catchy slogan about how things "work" would at least deserve an illustration of a mechanism that could actually turn.

@twovoyagers
@justjohn
Yeah thats why the hashtag "You had one job" is there
And how its ironically more accurate this way
@fribbledom

@fribbledom
You DO realize that gears in that configuration are pretty much stuck.

@fribbledom if u look up irony in the dictionary it's just this picture

@fribbledom have we been watching the same google talk vids? :)

@fribbledom They either had no idea what they were doing, or else knew exACTLY what they were doing...

@fribbledom Am I the only one that cares this sign implies the majority of the "work" should be on students? This is how the system instills a cult of personal responsibility and individualism from an early age.
