Teaching Tips Poem: Education Should Not be Just Getting Them on Level

What Education is Not:  Getting Them on Level

“My only aim is to get my kids on level,” said a grown-up one day.
————
Might we file their brains with a bevel, and later find their hearts are here to stay?
————
One wonders if being on level .  .  .  could have come straight from the devil.
For you see there’s the devil to pay.
————
If we forget the bell curve can’t be leveled. . . unless we throw their souls away.
