A student at a prestigious Melbourne all-girls school isn't putting up with the teachers' crap anymore, so she's crapping on the floor.
Piles of poop started appearing around campus in February, and according to a student who spoke to News.com.au, feces has has been found on the bathroom floor and sink "on numerous occasions."
The student released a very interesting, very serious manifesto that explored the rationale for the poopy protest, featuring such quotes as:
- We all know you’re not going to do anything, but at least my behaviour has punished the school for what it has done.
- The teachers are sh*t, so I have left symbolic droppings of what the education is like at this school. CRAP!!!
- You can’t silence me like you have silenced all my other peers that have come before you.
The poop maven placed copies of the open letter all around the school, and insists that the feces represent a "poor educational standard" at the school.
"I know I have resorted to the most extreme method to make a symbolic point but you NEVER listen to student voice," she wrote, specifically mentioning a teacher who "brings his earphones and watches ... mindless videos" while students are told to "read the text book and answer the questions."
The presence of poop isn't only what makes this protest exceptional—but the fact that the action is begging the administration to help them LEARN MORE, not less.
According to News.com.au, students are rallying around this shitty, unorthodox statement:
The students agreed with the sentiment of the letter, saying: "Although we receive the highest marks of the state, its because of the students, in general the majority of the teachers are unhelpful. The teaching methods are really inefficient. The person in the letter is definitely not wrong."
It really is upside down Down Under. Kids just want to learn.
