Some teens have confessed to smuggling drafts of stories to school in their textbooks and editing them during class; others sit around the lunch table talking plot and character issues with their classmates or try to work on the stories on the school computers until the librarians accuse them of wasting time. They can’t wait for the school bell to ring so they can focus on their writing.
Ah, our wonderful education system. "The students are uninterested in our boring teaching materials, so it's clear that we must punish them!" "They're not learning from us, so it's clear that they're doing something wrong!"
