“Why I’m Here”

A high-school English teacher “walks the talk” when offers Philosophy to his wayward students.

OPENING SENTENCE(S):

“On an experimental basis.” That’s how they worded it. And they scheduled it for seven in the frigging morning — for graduating seniors only, honors students too, no less. When we heard Strokes had gotten permission from the school board to teach philosophy to us, we wondered what he had over them. How much it cost him. Rumor was that the school board thought that Plato was a planet, but they approved Strokes’ request anyways. Ideas of Man, the class was called. Literature 352.
