The power of titties.

They never broke out the grade scores between the male and female students, but I think it has the potential to be a good example of what teenagers may be looking for to really make them care about education.


Girls don't look at titties...?

I work in a university chemistry dependent, and granted I am in the administrative office, but I *always* wear sneakers just in case I have to walk into a lab to talk with a faculty member. .

My coworkers wear flip-flops and open sandals.

The rest of it, I don't care, but flip flops are just not safe in a professional environment.

JWideman: This reminds me, one of my female high school teachers had an impressive rack and always wore tops that displayed her cleavage. And I mean display. It's funny, I don't remember the subject she taught, but I know I got an A in it.


Mine was an algebra teacher in eight grade. She was probably attractive at one time, like maybe the year I was born. She had a reputation for picking out a kid or two and really flirting with him, in this case me and my friend who sat next to me. She would lick her lips, flick her hair, bend over to pick up something she had dropped in front of us, then come lean over us to show us some algebraic equation, aka her boobs. She always wore loose neck blouses and bras that were too small, so nipples were seen. It got so bad that some girl, who I later found out liked me and was jealous, told her off in class about her flirting and clothes. After that she became a hard ass with us, especially me and my friend, as if we had something to do with the girl's outburst. I have a brother ten years younger than me who also had this women for algebra and he said she still did her little act. I'm also pretty sure she drank during class, can't blame her there, I would need some meds to get through eight hours of Jr High as an adult.

For one thing, you'd have to pay these highly trained professionals a lot more than you do for hammering knowledge into the thick skulls of your loinspawn.

skinink: Joce678: "Griffin said tattoos, especially sleeve tattoos, can appear unprofessional, offensive or distracting."

They're employing ex-cons as teachers?

i think it's so stupid when i see these young adults who are covered in them and expect me to be impressed. tats are ugly to me. i would never even consider getting one. it makes me laugh when i hear people say that they got theirs to define who they are personally. hahaha, are you kidding me? how can they be individuals when they are the very definition of conformity? EVERYONE nowadays, seems to have them. i have noticed also that many people who have them want people to be scared of them. why? why should i be scared of you? what,because you're a nut case with poor impulse control?it's like ok i get it; you have a lot of tattoos. i get it,you like wasting your money. i get it,you have a disposable income. why don't these people really try to be different? whenever they do get 'em,their tats are ALWAYS--- THE SAME! hey look at me, i have a tribal tat. yeah, you and 47 million others.what's your point?you wanna impress me? don't get one! tats are almost always associated with people who make bad choices in life. some of these choices affect only them,but unfortunately, most of their choices negatively impact innocent people's lives. like gangs-for instance;they are always covered in them.


Have you thought about seeing a proctologist? Because you appear to have a stick up your arse.

I work in a professional office in Florida doing international exports. Flip flops are A-OK here...the bosses like a "relaxed atmosphere" since the job itself can be rather stressful, and they want people to feel as comfy as possible while doing it. However, we do not have a warehouse or any facilities such as chemical labs where they could be a liability.

Also, most restaurants here, even fancy ones, do not frown upon flip-floppery. Many folk here have what they call "dress" flip flops, which are leather - or basically just a bit higher quality than the 2-dollar Old Navy style ones.

P.S. KiplingKat, I am curious - are you also on IMDB occasionally, specifically the LOTR board? :)

At that age, if a teacher was attractive, I don't think it would have mattered what they wore. I'd still find a way to imagine their clothes off.

Just because a teacher likes to wear flip-flops, visible undergarments, visible cleavage, bare midriffs, clothes that are too tight, too loose or transparent, bare shoulders, short skirts and exercise pants doesn't mean she's hookin' teachin'.

2012-06-15 09:35:31 AM
It may sound silly, but the truth is that many teachers just don't know how to dress for work; I think, though, it's indicative of the fact that we have an ENTIRE CULTURE that doesn't know how to dress professionally.

At my school, there are several teachers who dress tastefully and appropriately. But there are others who live, LIVE for jeans days. Honestly, they get an e-mail that says they can wear jeans, and they go TOTALLY apesh*t over it, like it's some fantastic privilege to slob around in sweatshirts and flip-flops.

And then there are OTHER teachers who dress like it's a nightclub fashion show. Too-too tight, too-too short, hoochie-mama heels, and ervathang hangin' out.

It is amazing, then, that these same teachers grumble and scratch their heads when their twelve year old students show up at school wearing tube tops and hotpants.

Was going to say something like this. I work in an office in South Florida. Flip flops are okay. But in Florida, you have "nice" work flip flops, going to dinner flip flops, and then some recreational flip flops. I don't see many cheap disposable flip flops, cause when you wear flip flops a lot you tend to buy ones that are good to your feet.

pkellmey: Sure, because as we all know, everyone outside of the education industry is the problem with education. Gotcha, but still an unoriginal complaint.


You say it sarcastically, but I think that educational outcomes are a relatively weak function of quality of instruction. Lots of other factors are more important, particularly above a certain basic level of teacher competence. MIT and Cambridge get good outcomes not because of godlike professors (many of whom scarcely condescend to interact with their students) but because they get MIT and Cambridge-caliber students who can study in an MIT and Cambridge-caliber environment.

Putting educational outcomes on teacher quality is like attributing the speed of your car to the quality of its motor oil. Sure, bad oil can affect performance, but other factors dominate, such as the pressure on the accelerator and what make of car you have in the first place.

Griffin said tattoos, especially sleeve tattoos, can appear unprofessional, offensive or distracting.

"Unprofessional", I can see that. "Offensive", only if it's offensive content, and then it's the content that's offensive, not the tattoo, shouldn't have hired the person in the first place. "Distracting"? Isn't it about time we take everyone who labels something like this distracting and stake them out to an anthill? This is getting stupid, what kid is going to be "distracted" by teacher's tattoos to the point that it actually affects their schoolwork? My stepsons are easily distracted, yet they had a teacher for 2 years who had tattoos on his arms, they never got "distracted", it's a bullshiat 'one size fits all' label, and it's annoying.

Now, to be fair, they finally broke down when I was in high school back in the 80's, and let us wear shorts to school, as well as tank tops. Without some kind of guidelines in place, all Hell breaks loose. They thought ahead about shorts and stopped short-shorts before they could show up, but they forgot to have any regulation about tank tops. We had a few weeks of VERY interesting school before they said the same thing about cleavage that this policy says. I remember one girl wearing two tanks tops, and still showing us everything but nipple, so I can understand why they need to set a standard on some stuff. Most of this is idiotic though. Interestingly enough, this was in AZ as well, maybe they just like to flap the boobies in AZ?

Badgerlad: Banning flip-flops seems like a good cause, feet are of the devil.

No excercise pants should make for some interesting gym classes, though...


Actually the flip flop thing sounds good from a safety perspective. They aren't stable footwear, and really shouldn't be worn as often as they are. Of course women's dress shoes are even more unsafe if there is any kind of heel involved. Besides, they're pretty low-class, your teacher should have a little bit of pride in their appearance.

Terrible Old Man: Flip-flops? Really? Who the blue hell thinks flip-flops are the devil?


Flip flops are for the gym shower or the pool/beach. They are not for a grown adult to wear to work. The fact that you have to tell adults that they are not appropriate is sad.

If you want to be treated like an adult try dressing like one.

awfulperson: But there are others who live, LIVE for jeans days.


I don't see the problem with Jeans that get everyone's panties bunched they way they get yours twisted. They are durable, I can make them last 2-3 years per pair, and I wear them daily. They are decently warm in the winter, and not ridiculously hot in the summer. Spilled things like printer toner, ink, etc, don't ruin them, and the standard blue color makes a good neutral match with almost anything.

Ripped jeans are a different story, though.

Well then we should just cut the public education system and save ourselves a shiatload of money. After all, the teachers aren't making much of a difference. The kids will get almost as smart all by themselves.

If we want to fix our education system, we could start by hiring people who take responsibility for their successes and their failures. I don't think there is a bigger group of "pass the buck" assholes out there than teachers.

umad: I don't think there is a bigger group of "pass the buck" assholes out there than teachers administrators and elected representatives.


FTFY.

The university I work for took at 49 million dollar budget cut last year. Did they eliminate an entire level of upper administration that does not exist in other institutions and only serves to gum up the works? Did anyone even suggest they take it out of the financial sink hole of our athletics program? No. The first place they took it was to not renew many non-tenured faculty contracts, the boots on the ground teachers that handle the general courses so many students HAVE to have. Now in the chemistry department have our research faculty teaching general chemistry labs and we *still* can't cover the need for our department, biology, engineering, all the medical majors, geology, etc..

So before you get pissy with the teachers, maybe you need to look higher up the chain at the people who make the insane salaries and shiatty decisions.

And don't get me started on how many current administrative policies, such as not letting teachers give zeros for work that is not turned in, let alone all the problems caused by No Child Left Behind, have tied teachers' hands.
 
2012-06-15 11:06:41 AM

pkellmey: CSB - In a neighboring high school in my area, they had a history of problems with low test scores in chemistry. When the older female teacher retired, they hired a hot, young, buxom teacher who excelled at getting the kids to pay attention to her. They turned that class around in a single year to having some of the best scores in the state.


Did the girls get lower scores?
/Double standard again: if a male teacher hangs out his junk, his farking mug shot will appear here.
