The opposite of strength

Professional development (two words and you already know this isn't going to end well) is starting. We are to write down information about our students. Now we have to speak about what we wrote. One says, "My students strengths are (1)(2)(3) and my students weaknesses are --" and is promptly cut off by the "expert."

"Your students don't have weaknesses. They have needs. You can't call them weaknesses."

You can't make this up.
