And all the Germans in the surrounding classrooms swore they didn't know Jews were being forced under desks. Why would they force them under desks when they could be doing something useful like sharpening pencils?

I was once reprimanded for sharpening a pencil in the 3rd grade. The biatch slapped my hand with a ruler and told me to ask permission next time, before sharpening my pencil

I'm not a teacher, but I'm pretty sure there's a better way to teach the Holocaust than dragging a kid under a desk.

Then again, maybe we should be glad she didn't push him into a gas oven.

First off, even though she apparently has a spotless 23 year teaching record. she does sort of look like a Nazi.
Secondly, what does :The teacher then dragged him 10ft under a table and made the comment about Nazis" mean. Maybe I'm missing something stupid, but where is 10 feet under a table?

23-year career. This seems like a case of classroom apathy. She probably taught the same lesson she's been teaching for years, taught about the struggle against tyranny, taught about mass murder, taught about good people doing nothing and evil people thriving. And for the first time the whole class said,

"meh."

And she snapped. It happens.

The writer should've spent more time in class. I would say 10' is the total distance dragged. It just really sucked this happened in math class. The math teacher I had in that grade was a bit of a Nazi, and I mean walked and dressed similar to a Nazi. Her dresses looked like something from WWII Germany only a different color.

One day during my Current World Events class in high school, the teacher separated us when we arrived there by brown eyes and non-brown eyes. Being that the minority were the non-brown eyes that is where I ended up. Of course, he didn't tell anyone that he was teaching on racism and prejudice that day. He just went into a character full of malice, hatred and spite while showing love and joy for the other side. When he moved us, I left my book at my assigned desk and when we started to open it up I asked if I could retrieve it. The words that he said to me in front of the class was absolutely horrible to the point where my blood was boiling. I calmed down once he enlightened us to the lesson and apologized for his actions while being in character. I learned a lot that day. Even 20 years later I still remember how poorly I was treated and it allowed me to have more compassion for others. I am not advocating for what the teacher did in the article because I believe that it could have been handled differently, I'm merely explaining how such actions affected me in the long run.

We actually got the little paper arm bands to divide us, but otherwise we did the same sort of lesson our freshman year of high school. Later in the year, we redid the lesson with the groups switched.

That's real teaching. A real lesson with a real impact that ties directly to a real study of a real event. Now, thanks to political meddling and parents who think that public school is just a numbers game for college transcripts, those sorts of lessons don't happen as much. It's just drill, drill, drill for standardized reading and math tests so the school doesn't lose its funding because apparently our society has decided that it's more important that kids can recite lists of facts while having absolutely no critical thinking capacity and no ability to apply those facts to real problems.

Because fark an actual education, my snowflake doesn't need to know history or science, she needs good looking numbers so she can get an MBA and start running huge corporations into the ground to get that sweet, sweet golden parachute.

If there's one thing I've learned about American media in the 21st century, it's that this article is almost certainly completely accurate and shows all sides of the story. A reporter would never take a story from a pre-teen child who is pissed at his teacher and just run with it without diligently investigating the claims made and taking an exhaustive look at the issue from all possible angles. I am, therefore, able to jump to a snap conclusion that this 23-year veteran teacher is completely nuts and I will be outraged if she is not fired on the spot and given a public lashing. Case closed!

I recall learning about the holocaust in 8th grade. I didn't grasp it at all, and even tried to suggest that perhaps there was a silver lining to the whole thing. My teacher was aghast, and I knew that I'd upset her, but I still didn't understand. Then she took us to the holocaust museum. I understood, and I felt deep shame for for naively suggesting that there could have been any upside to this horror.

I don't think you can present something like that as a classroom abstraction and have kids grasp it. It's too far outside of their realm of experience. You shouldn't physically handle students in this way either, but it doesn't sound like this kid was hurt. Sounds like a good teacher who needs some training on where the line is, exactly. Creativity, engagement, shaking things up a bit - these are good educational tools. We don't need to demonize everyone who makes a mistake.

CSB time

So I was sitting In quality Management, and our professor talks about how a Japanese company bought a multi million dollar oven to increase their tile production. Some kid ask who they bought the oven from, to which the teacher replies "I believe it was from Germany."

without missing a beat I say out loud "That makes sense, the Germans are known for their ovens."

The teacher missed it, but half the class gasped and the other half laughed.
