I have been writing poems since I was 14 years old and in school myself. Before that I used to be an elementary school kid. Since that time I've been a mother of school age kids, and now yikes I'm a grandmother of kids in school! Not to mention there was a time I was a visiting poet in schools in Michigan, Texas, and Ohio. Wherever I've been, there have always been a lot of weird things going on at school. Homework disappears. Ask any kid, it's all in a day's work.
