April is National Poetry Month. To celebrate the month, we're having a fun poetry contest.

Here's how it works:

:: Post your limerick on how to best improve education below :: Invite others to vote on your limerick. To vote, simply click on the thumbs up icon in the top right-hand corner of the post. :: At the end of the month, the top five limericks with the most "thumbs ups" will have their limerick promoted on edutopia.org's homepage and in our enewsletter! Plus, you'll get a fabulous bag of art/poetry-inspired goodies!

Let the Limericks begin! Deadline is April 30 at midnight PDT.

There once was a strategy that didn't work.
So the teacher said happily with a smirk,
"I will ask my colleagues!
They'll know how to achieve,
And learning will take off with a jerk!"

Things in class just weren't going well
Staff and parents and students just didn't gel
Brainstorming was done
They implemented ideas, so fun
Now their school climate is totally swell!
