Just a couple more days to go for my wife, who is a teacher… Just a week to go for my boys, including a few pointless half days… School is just about OUT FOR SUMMER! Although I still go to work, a household including 3 people without daily responsibilities has its merits: no complaints about tests, no reminders about homework, no disrespectful kids other than our own. In honor of the final days of school, which may have come already for some of you in other parts of the country, let us count the ways we are fed up with school…in song. LAST MAN STANDING: Not just any old song about school, no, we’re talking songs about being sick of school!

    I would say “The Hard Way” by the Kinks, although the song is sung from the standpoint of a teacher who’s sick of his students.

    Also, “School’s Out” always reminds me of the last day of school, w/the chairs on the desks, classroom all scrubbed & clean & you had the feeling that you were going to be free forever.
