I gave a speech in my speech class about the destruction of learning and self-discovery in the current US school system because of things like standardized testing and the No Child Left Behind Act. My teacher came up to me personally at the end of class and said she loved my content…after she said in front of the class that she would have changed the entire structure of the speech.
