Satire Political border walls are stupid

It turns out The Wall – a ten-foot-high, two-foot-thick slab of iron-spiked, barbed-wire-topped concrete, spanning the border between the nations of Grattland and Niai – is not working. This is a humorous little ditty about how border walls are stupid.

Satire Science Fiction Teenagers education teaching Books high school reading writing

People outside of education have no idea what schools are like in the present era of standardized testing, teacher "accountability," and externally applied curriculums and measurements. It's a messy, intrusive, complicated, bureaucratic world where teachers and students try to survive its most dehumanizing aspects. If trends continues, schools like the one in "Pirate Readers" are just around the corner.

A warning: This story contains many things that might offend some readers, including semi-explicit sex, "sci-fi violence," four-letter words that somehow retain a certain power, and a general spirit of meanness. Ellen Datlow said she liked it in spite of herself, and published it in 1998 on EventHorizon.com, a site you need the Wayback Machine to find today. The theme park name in this story was stolen from Judith Berman, who I hope forgives me.
