The lasting effect of a progressive school system. Pt 4

7) This final still was discovered stuck to the bottom of one of our investigator's shoes.  Apparently it fell out of the folder during our review of the case.  
Thank god there was a piece of 40-year-old gum on it or it may have been lost forever, 
it's significance to this case is paramount, as you can see.

4) What the H@!!?  Why is this kid immediately turning to take a look at the last Algebra problem in the Text Book?  What is he thinking?

5) This is exactly what we were afraid of...

6) That's it.  Party's over.

The lasting effect of a progressive school system. Pt 2

1) The day started enthusiastically, as it should.

2) The student experiences a healthy anticipation.

3) And what appeared to be a normal curiosity.

The lasting effect of a progressive school system. Pt 1

In the early 1970's, New Jersey public schools were considered at the forefront of modern day education.  Proper funding and experienced educators created fertile ground to introduce students to the most advanced education possible.  Complicated mathematics, such as Algebra, once thought impossible for elementary school age students to comprehend, was now being introduced to them and with great success.  Recently, a file was discovered which revealed there was, however, one unfortunate exception to this successful program and although the individual's name has been obscured with magic marker to avoid any embarrassment this may cause him, it appears the name is Fusaro.

The file will be presented, complete with photos, for your review.  

We will go through each phase of this tragic side effect carefully.  Dissecting each entry one by one in the upcoming posts.  This is being done methodically to insure a mistake this grave is never made again.

A Significant Date in Art History

In the fall of 1980, Fusaro, a former member of Clifton High School's Talented and Gifted Program, was accepted to the Art Program at William Paterson University.

At WPU, all incoming Freshman art students were encouraged to attend the Senior art exhibit in the Art Department's Ben Shahn Gallery.  Fusaro attended and was so overwhelmed with the magnificent pieces of art the Seniors had created he left the campus and immediately enlisted in the Military.

The sound of resignation emitted from Fusaro's mind was so loud some say they can still hear it echoing in the corridors of the art building almost 30 years later.  They say it appears to sound something like, "What's.... the... use...?" 

(The above image was taken directly from Fusaro's memory)

What happened? It started out as fun

On Friday, June 20th, 2008, Fusaro began the 
enjoyable pastime of Posting a daily cartoon.
However, in a relatively short time, 
Fusaro transformed this playful endeavor 
into a source of *unbearable pressure.
