Here in the United States, a new television program premiered this week. I don’t know if there will be more episodes. My husband, who knew about it and recorded it, says it was the pilot, which makes me think there are other episodes coming. My daughter texted to see if I had watched it (I had not at the time of her text nor did I even know about it) as she had watched it on Hulu. So, we watched Abbott, a mockumentary on public schools.
Let me tell you, it is pretty right-on. Which, as my daughter noted, is very sad. But, there is humor scattered here and there, just like in a real school setting. You have to laugh or you will just sit in a puddle of tears and be angry all of the time.
As it ended on a bit of a high note, I had to say that there was more truth in the final solution to the episode’s problem than you would wish. I texted my daughter–If you want something for your class, go get it yourself. Go find someone in the community to provide it. And when you get so tired of doing that, retire.
