Honesty: Such a Lonely Word

About 5 months ago, our new schools division superintendent ordered that we revive the golden reminder: Honesty is the best policy. All schools agreeably backed up this idea by making visible signs of the saying in the classrooms and offices, and even in sheds and gates!

In this ultra modern society, it seems that honesty makes value only when there are eyes watching. People around often fail to realize the social ownership and corporate responsibility of the institution called education, which must be the reason why schools are prevalent victims of theft.

One time we were chatting about the recent  cases of lost coins and bills in some classes in our school.

One teacher, looking at the sign, commented: Honesty is the best policy.

Out of the blue, I barely noticed myself segued: And honesty is such a lonely word.
