Good, Bad, CluelessIt is Monday morning, and the students are anxious. Today is when they take the Exams of Very Influential Leveling: an important State test. The teacher says "Good morning, class," and immediately begins passing out the tests.Student Number One looks around the room and grins at his classmastes:"This isn't so bad. If I do well on this test, I can get into great colleges. Plus, this test is really important to The State."Student Number Two groans and rolls his eyes. Twirling a Sharpie marker between his fingers, he tilts his chair back casually."Ah, I'm not even going to bother taking this test. Instead, I'm going to teach myself important stuff, not the stupid things that The State wants us to know."Student Number Three sighs and picks up his #2 pencil resignedly as he looks over the test booklet."Oh well, just another Scan-Tron test. Heyyyy....what's with with the fancy-looking booklet thing?"
"An Experiment""Zzzzzzzz..."The sun had barely risen, and already the teacher had launched into a full recitation of the textbook."Blah, blah, blah," said he."Zzzzzzzzz...," said the student.Words floated through the room like feathers on a breeze."Blah, blah, blah, blah, This is on the test, blah," said the teacher."Huh?" Says the student.Alarm bells clang, neon signs flash brilliant colors, sirens wail. Suddenly, the student is the most attentive listener in class.
