Eventually we get a few gems, of school administrators we have grown to love so much( I will post more as I remember them). Here is one that wasn't a school administrator, but it was totally worth it:
script format because it's easier:
Now this is a private school, so they aren't required to take these standardized testings as the state does not finance their testings, anyway, on with the show
me: good morning this is (blah)
caller: hi, I am a very concerned citizen, I am standing outside school (blah)
me: (thinking to myself, why on Earth didn't you call the police and not the company that administers the test, but I have to be professional... so )
On the public website you should be able to find them, here is how you do it. ( gave her the address and went there myself )
(few seconds pass)
caller: I just looked it up on my ipad, they don't have any scores.
me: okay, well it says here they are a private school so they aren't required to take the test (me thinking, okay, this call is almost done.... nope )
caller: that is ridiculous! I hear this school advertising on the TV all the time that each of these kids are invested 7,500 dollars in education to attend this school, and the taxpayers are paying for this. According to this site they have 654 kids enrolled in their school, that's like over 8 million dollars (I did the math in my head, and I was like, well it's more like 4.98 Million, but beside the point) worth of taxpayer's money being wasted on these brats and nobody is even testing this school to make sure they're being taught anything to receive this funding!? This is Preposterous!!!
me: (I am thinking, does she not understand the concept of what a private school is? No tax payers are paying for this, only the parents of the kids, but... gotta stay professional) Mam, they are a private school, like I said so they aren't required to take the tests, our call center only handles testing procedures and questions about the test, would you like so speak with someone over at the state department to voice your opinion?
caller: oh yes, very much so, I will raise hell and high waters over this, I can't believe all the money that goes into this school and we're paying for it.
me: (not wanting to get into a discussion with this lady about private school, decided it was better to send her on) Okay, please hold mam, I will transfer you to the state department.
caller: Thank you, you've been very helpful! ( she was always screaming on the phone for some reason )
A few minutes passed and we got a call from the state.
state: hey guys, just wanted to say thank you for sending that lovely lady over, we all had a good laughter here at the state when she said she would sue the state, the government and the school for wasting the taxpayer's money even though they are a private school, we tried to explain that private school doesn't use the taxpayer's money, but she completely went insane after we told her the taxpayers don't pay for it, and started screaming loudly and threatening to sue us because of all the tens of millions of money wasted on the school, thank you once again, that was awesome.
it was a good day...
tl;dr - Citizen totally loses it when learns a private school doesn't take a standardized testing only required by public schools.
