Satire Science Fiction high school reading writing Teenagers education teaching Books

People outside of education have no idea what schools are like in the present era of standardized testing, teacher "accountability," and externally applied curriculums and measurements. It's a messy, intrusive, complicated, bureaucratic world where teachers and students try to survive its most dehumanizing aspects. If trends continues, schools like the one in "Pirate Readers" are just around the corner.

We awoke at 5am in the morning to ascend to the final leg of our 4 days hike on top of Poon Hill (3210 M). I placed my tripod down and set my camera up for a long exposure shot and this was the result. After about 40km of hiking, this shot was definitely worth every ounce of effort! The mountain range you’re looking at is the Annapurna mountain range with the middle peak being Annapurna South. - For commercial use please email brandonsiu8@gmail.com - Donations at venmo: @brandonsiu
