6th-Grade Teacher Unveils New App That Lets Students Watch Their Parents Struggle Over 25 Years
By Wendell McRobotface
WICHITA, KS—Promising a new way for students to see firsthand the painful struggles that each of them will face in their adult lives, the sixth-grade class of social studies teacher Mary Lynn Mutlierer unveiled a new app Thursday that lets students watch their parents struggle over 25 years. “This app allows students to watch their parents struggle over whether to get their own copy of The Handmaid’s Tale,” said Mutlierer in a press conference, noting that students can access a live feed of their mother’s attempt to buy a new copy, their father’s futile attempts to buy the same thing, and their mother’s attempts to direct him to the lower-priced, easier-to-find copies she received. “We want to make sure that students have the opportunity to see their parents struggle to figure out how to get around a half-million dollar debt and then watch them struggle to figure out how to get their own copy of that book you don’t want to buy. It’s never been easier to see your parents struggle with the major decisions they will make in their adult years—and the lessons they will gain from their struggles.” Mutlierer added that the app is free for seven weeks, and available on both iOS and Android devices.
