Counterpoint: I (and my wife) love our local K-5 school district. They are progressive, harm-reduction oriented, very little homework and emotional/social wellbeing-centric. We're both college professors and have been very impressed with the level of intentionality and thoughtfulness they bring to the entire school day. Kids don't get sent to the Principal's office. The Principal comes to the classroom. When we call off school "sick" for a mental health day, the secretaries don't ever question it. They just say "we hope they feel better."
Not related, but omfg we need a serious re-investment in our K-12 education system in the U.S. SO many teachers are fed up and burnt out. My wife quit her tenured professorship because she was burnt out, and that's full grown adult learning. I can't imagine how tough it is on primary school educators.
Oooh, someone found the Nick Adams (Alpha Male) twitter account!

Dumb enough to make me laugh - both the clip above and this
I think it means extra cream of coconut. I don't think a Pina Colada has milk products in it, does it? I'd be very upset if someone did that to me. I depend on that not containing a dairy product.
Certainly explains Skyrim and the wheels of cheese.
