Apathy Jack writes:

Another reason I like my job...

Sitting in my classroom this morning, reading a story written by one of my little Year 10s. It's the best piece of writing I've come across this year.

No, not simply the best rubbishy teenaged outpouring to cross my desk in my capacity as a teacher at a school with shockingly low literacy rates, but actually the best piece of writing overall. And I've read something like twenty books this year.

And that's awesome.

Maybe the author might allow an excerpt to be posted here? No, I suppose they're too young to be considered able to make that call for themself.

Still, we all must recall that Jack does have appalling low standards; he reads 'Investigate Magazine,' after all.
