If You Only Thought Grilling Was For Chicken...

I saw one of my students smile for the first time today. I have had him for two different classes, and never a grin until today.

In retrospect, I don't think it was because he was happy. I think he wanted me to see his new purchase.


That's the setup and I am totally letting you all grab the punchline. Never let it be said I am not generous.

I HATE those things. How to say they are aesthetically unpleasing without sounding like a fogey or a bigot?

I'm an editor from NEA Today doing a piece about students' spending habits, and how the demand for expensive clothes, gadgets, and now I guess, grills, seems to be growing and causing problems for teachers.
Anyone on here (who's an NEA member) who has thoughts on this?
Are other folks seeing grills pop up in their schools? Email me at ckopkowski@nea.org.
Thanks, Cynthia Kopkowski
