Maybe let's DON'T do it for the children

Now children, to the tune of Frère Jacques, sing, “I am special, I am special. Look at me.

It starts in preschool, but goes on to college and this educator thinks it's getting out of hand.

I don't recall that problem when I was going to grade school. I think one teacher called me a quitter and another told me I was smart but lazy.

Quitter? No, I don't think so.

Smart, but lazy? Eh... I might concede that one. But then again, it might be that my sense of priority differs from yours.
