By Alice, Iowa, Age 14

I've learned how to play this game called school.
I've learned how to play to my advantage.
I've learned not to show all I can do, so teachers expect less of me.
I've learned how to gain more spare time.
I've learned how to win this game called school.

How to Explain by Dylan, North Carolina, Age 9
Being different I know,
It's hard to show,
How you found the answer,
Did you inquire your mother, or ask a dancer?
The answer I know, but my heads gonna blow!
