Proviso Probe

absurdity as policy

This morning I took a walk through the Forest Preserve near Proviso East.

I found a pencil that said:

Proviso East High School
Yes, I'll Do My Very Best on the PSAE Test

This struck me as absurd.

1. Propaganda isn't a substitute for substantive policy.
2. If students are scoring low on the test because they aren't trying to do their best, how will these pencils address the problem? "I'm gonna screw my teacher by tanking the test unless I get something out of the deal, like a pencil."
