Class is in Cession

On my first day working at a high school in Brooklyn, I was subbing for a teacher who had been stabbed in the hand with a pencil by student who was unwilling to give up his Walkman. I can’t imagine what it takes for today’s teachers to distract students from their much more advanced devices. And apparently, it was harder than ever yesterday, when teens went bananas for the new Snapchat update. Software is the new rock star.

+ A senior at Parkway High School in Rockford, Ohio took his great-grandmother to his prom. (And I bet he still got further than I did at my prom.)
