Hello, we are the Board of Education, can you help us find our bums?

That's it. I've had it. I'm a junior in high school, and I've decided that the BOE (board of education) where I live is completely and utterly FUBAR (f----- up beyond a repair). It seems to me that the BOE continues to make stupid stupid mistakes! They've put us in the "Middle School System" which means that there are 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th graders in a school that was over crowded with just 10th, 11th, 12th graders. It's busting at the seem. Half the teaching staff was selected just days before the beginning of school and there are minions of trailers outlining the school to make more room. Rules are changing and the freedoms juniors and seniors once had are dwindling. They're gone, in fact. And every resemblance of smart teaching is lost when the teachers are hired off the street and fresh out of school, with no experience. It is left to the principal to discipline. He blows fuses nearly on command now that he's punishing so many students. It nearly seems they're letting the larger ones, I've dubbed them "Urgs", prey on the innocent younger ones, the "Meekels" and nearly obliterate them just to keep numbers down. Not to mention the grading scale which has changed to make only the smart "Eins" pass the class. I hate the BOE, BOE is the dark side. BOE leads to much suffering.
