The Teacher Applicant

After being interviewed by the school administration, the teaching
prospect said, "Let me see if I've got this right: "You want me to go
into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior,
observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor
their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning. "You
want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and
sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and
personal pride.

"You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship,
sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a
checkbook, and apply for a job. "You want me to check their heads for
lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they
all pass the state exams.
"You want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their
handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents by letter,
telephone, email, newsletter, and report card.

"You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a
bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that
qualifies me for food stamps.

"You want me to do all this and then you tell me... "I CAN'T PRAY?"

Anyone who thinks there is no prayer in school hasn't been there during final exams! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Do it for the cheese!!!

That's a classic.

You support every bit of nonsense leading to this mess and then bemoan that the mess exists.

Let me guess?

He posts a funny anecdote about the difficulties of being a teacher and you respond with your usual haterade.
Made no sense, buddy.
Your hate for Wolfie is starting to cloud your judgement.
It was a funny post. Laugh.
Get away from the keyboard for a while. Shoot some pool.
Which is what I'm going to do as soon as I eat breakfast.

Typical reply from you....now run over to AZB and reprint that big put down.
That was a copy, by the way, of an email sent to me....so you look even el dumber then usual, with your idiotic comments, Rocky

It's some kind of twisted OCD...witness the 7 replies to Gayle's post.

Hondo we have to get rid of the ridiculous No Child left behind and start English only in the classroom. It is inconceivable that a teacher can teach subjects to students that have no idea what is being said to them. Lww is one such student he never answers a question. He goes off in another tangent.####

Dick, don't forget that he was left behind....permanently...

Dick, NCLB is a joke.
It rationalizes the type of thinking the right has accused the left of for years.

LOL, that is pretty funny.
