Teachers better start caring
About what their students know.
Instead of teaching just for the grades
Of the students—it's all a big show.
When you step out of the class room,
What do you take with you?
Is it good grades or actual knowledge?
Do you get my point of view?
In the long run, what you know
matters more than that report card.
Students better stop cramming
And should start studying hard.
They need to take school seriously,
and so do teachers—critically.
We need to change our priorities
From the grades to what matters, you see?
