A play on Philip K. Dick book, "Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep", on which the Ridley Scott directed movie 'Blade Runner' was based on, a majority of today’s high school students seem to embrace failure as an option because they either 1) feel that they will be bailed out by a teacher because of pressure to give the students a passing grade, or 2) they will always be served by a society that has conditioned them to think that society will wait on them hand and feet thereby the student doesn't have to do anything. Kinda like a diner in a restaurant waiting to be served by the waiter/waitress. I have seen the future of this country in classrooms, and it’s frightening. Yet, are too many of todays students doing what the school system has conditioned them to do? Lets talk about it.
