Duck tea, anyone?

Duck Shit Tea.

I spotted this outside a shop yesterday and had a ball discussing it with my wife. Then I made a mental note to force a tangential connection to schooling and education.

Businesses get away with such efforts because they want to get the attention of potential customers. When some folk say that we should apply this strategy wholesale in schooling and education, I say no.

Students are not our customers and they should not be bought with novelty. Doing this sets up the expectation that learning is transactional and dependent on external stimuli. It can be, but that fruit is low-hanging and tastes like, well, duck tea.
