On September of 2005, a social studies school teacher from Arkansas did something not to be forgotten.

On the first day of school – with permission of the school superintendent, the principal, and the building supervisor – took all of the desks out of the classroom.

The kids came into first period, they walked in; there were no desks.

They obviously looked around and said:

“Where’s our desks?”

The teacher said:

“You can’t have a desk until you tell me how you earn them.”

They thought:

“Well, maybe it’s our grades.”

“No,” she said.

“Maybe it’s our behavior.”

And she told them:

“No, it’s not even your behavior.”

And so they came and went in the first period, still no desks in the classroom. Second period, same thing.
