English. The continuation high school. They had the day to finish up any work for the soon-to-be-ending block. (Instead of four quarters and two semesters, the continuation high school's year is broken up into eight blocks.)
I ran into the the teacher in the parking lot. (Ms. S had a meeting at the district office.) After a brief rundown of the plans (of which a written copy was left in the classroom), she warned me that she didn't want the students using the Chromebooks (read: the computers).
Why? (I didn't ask; she just explained.) The kiddos have been popping keys off the keyboard...
Because of course they are.
So, instead of watching YouTube or playing Krunker while they had a sub (because while they'd have an actual assignment, most wouldn't actually do it), they were stuck with watching YouTube or playing Krunker on their phones.
Oh, I tried to get them on task. But at a certain point, the argument isn't worth the trouble.
At least this way, if they're going to be defacing devices, it's their own stuff they're mangling.
