Be Quiet!

Today I have a period that is called STEP group. It is basically a homeroom where we do career planning and help them with the next “step.” Today, they were quiet as a mouse and I realized something. We beat it into their head that they need to be quiet. By junior year they are so quiet that we can’t get them to talk at all. How interesting and tragic that they don’t know the difference between times when they can’t talk and times that it is appropriate. They just default to not talking at all. What have we done as a public educational institution? I am glad that I am part of the solution rather than the problem.
