>New Brunswick Education system is just like me. They got a little taste of fame when a school decided to not play the national anthem any more and now they get addicted to the lime-light!! They love it, they want it, they need to be apart of it!
So an obviously crazy teacher gave out a simple assignment to their grade four class:
The world is about to blow up. You have a space shuttle that can save three other people. You have to choose who you would save out of the following groups of people: an Acadian francophone, a chinese person, a black african, an english person and an aboriginal person!!!!
The ones you don’t choose will die when the world blows up!!!!
This is amazing. And I don’t mean this in a good way, I mean in amazingly ridiculous sorta way! How and why does this assignment even exist? This isn’t Heroes people, these kids are like 8 years old! I honestly can’t figure out the purpose of it, but the school board of new brunswick is in some deep deep doo-doo. Worse yet they don’t see a problem with it!
From CBC NB:
“Bernice Ryan, the school’s principal, said she has listened to Lomax’s concerns, but feels the exercise is a good one, as it is intended to show the students how to be respectful to all groups.“
Next thing you know the NB Government will have it’s own Twitter page!
