Check This Box if You just started a parade of cliché

这篇文章很温暖,几乎足够点燃十三岁的我对世界抱有的美好向往。同时,这篇文章也是二十四岁的我第一次在《读者》和《青年文摘》以外读到了面试扶扫把,推门进入总裁办公室听到「恭喜你被录取了」这类 cliché.

在录取的时候观察和重视一个学生是否除了在 CV 里疯狂展露出的智能之外还有些许人性和温情可能确实重要,但是在餐厅里落下巧克力棒被学生归还就可以浸入思绪长河的这位老师未免是有些刻奇。我不是要愤世嫉俗,招生是需要全方位查看一个学生的实力,但将这样的事情写出来并有意鼓励学生多展示自己可拆卸的温情,或许有一点太一码归一码了。所以当读到作者下面这段真情流露的时候,我还是很不舒服。

Next year there might be a flood of custodian recommendations thanks to this essay. But if it means students will start paying as much attention to the people who clean their classrooms as they do to their principals and teachers, I’m happy to help start that trend.
