We do. You'd be surprised to know that are many of us who despise the
structure of the system. I implement the model in my classrooms. I take
attendance. After that, I have the curriculum of my subject, and I have a
couch. If they ask my permission to go to the restroom it really ticks me
off. They don't aske me anymore. I take the flak for it and try to imagine
how much I don't care.
