yeah, because the only way to help the poor is through wasteful government programs.


Yeah, prior to government programs, there were no people in poverty! Social Security, for instance, didn't remove hundreds of thousands of elderly folks out of non-existent poverty, the rich and corporations were TOTALLY taking care of everyone!

In many states, you don't need a degree to be a teacher. Your chances of hire are greater if you have one, but you don't need one.

pedobearapproved: Well high school teachers are tenured now, like professors.


No, they are not. For one, contracts for public school teachers differs tremendously state to state, thus saying "high school teachers" would be extremely inaccurate. Second, "tenure" refers to professional contract teachers which provides various benefits based on the state; these benefits may include (note "may") preferred employment over nonprofessional contracts, preferred place or position of employment, automatic renewal of contract, appeal of termination, professional development for failing teachers, and more. Nowhere, however, is this near tenure for professors; the principal is still able to dismiss a teacher but has to have given a reason and given notice for a chance to correct, which basically protects from a single poor year after several proficient ones.

So... shut the f*ck up.

Cup Check: doglover: MaudlinMutantMollusk: I can't wrap my brain around stories like this. I mean, WTF was this "teacher" thinking when she did that? Send the kids home to enlighten their parents? Sway future voters? Did she believe there would be no repercussions? And if she believed there would be no repercussions, isn't she too farking stupid to be a teacher?

/WTF? on so many levels

Career teaching is a horrific job. Overworked, underpaid, everyone's a backseat driver: you just snap. I don't mean you go on a rampage or anything. But eventually you just reach a point where you just lose the ability to use judgement. It happens a lot. I'd bet mental exhaustion is behind more sick days than disease.

Next time your teacher is a sub, ask yoursef "Is it really a cold or does teaching just suck." then vote for pay rises to educators. (Raise in 'merican, I guess.)

Riiiiiiiiight, because money cures mental exhaustion. I always forget about that direct correlation. It makes sense, the people with the most money are the most mentally sound.

I have to agree with you here... I am all for paying teachers well for a thankless job, which will hopefully mean that we get more talented and intelligent people as teachers, but it does nothing to combat or compensate the underling issues that are related to flat out mental fatigue.

If anything, I would say going nuts is almost an occupational hazard for most teachers! How do you pay someone for that and consider them compensated?

Obviously, work conditions need to change sufficiently to make teaching a healthy occupational choice for individuals and some more money to ensure that we don't get people who are quite literally just a step up from convience store clerks in terms of aptitude and attitude into these positions.

The issues are probably not really as related as most people would assume.

Bennett declined to confirm the teacher's name or say what had happened to her. However, he said he thought the district's response had been appropriate and is confident there would not be another problem with the teacher, a veteran educator popular with many students.

If she wrote down the same thing about Republicans I am guessing she would have been immediately fired.

GAT_00: "I feel like she was bullied by a teacher," Gilbert said of her daughter.

She was, but it was Christian bullying, so it's totally acceptable.


As an extremely liberal Christian, I would firmly stand against this woman and her actions. But it's the internet, so sweeping statements overrule actual evidence to the contrary.

Fibro: steerforth: KrispyKritter: way to miss the point, geniuses. it was a psychology class. she was trying to get the students provoked, to think and react. herp derp bible! morans.

That was my reading as well. The teacher is running an experiment. Not a very well controlled experiment, but one nonetheless.

Hopefully.

Did you... not read the article?


Yes, I read the article, and it seemed on first glance like this teacher was so over the top in her behaviour that it could only have possibly been an experiment to show the kids that people were going to have a diverse range of reactions to the results of the election. Republicans raging about the 47 per cent going to hell and all that. Perhaps it was a way to introduce the theories of Kubler-Ross versus Bonanno and how people have attached these theories to all sorts of grief. This is a psychology class after all.

Then I read that it was Kentucky and Fark has warned me about Kentucky, so I had second thoughts.

In many states, you don't need a degree to be a teacher. Your chances of hire are greater if you have one, but you don't need one.


Um, no. In most states you no longer need an Education degree to be a teacher, just a Bachelor's or higher of any kind (or, in some states, of a kind related to the subject you'll be teaching if you're teaching high school).

This has little to do with lowering standards, and a lot to do with "Education" being one of those undergrad majors where you learn so little that you typically come out of the program knowing less than when you went in. They're the only programs in existence that make undergrad business look rigorous and difficult.

//I have no beef with education and business as masters+ disciplines, and the undergrads in the major are I'm sure fine people and fun to drink with, but that doesn't change the fact that the intellectual ability and education indicated by the BS/BA level of the credential is about on par with "GED".

"You can't be a Democrat & go to heaven"


Why does everyone here have a problem with this statement? This seems like a pretty straightforward logical proposition. It states, the set of people who are Democrats and the set of people who go to heaven have no common elements. Any atheist would conclude this proposition is obviously true since the set of people who go to heaven is itself a null set. Even for Christians it is not demonstrably false: the Bible names exactly two people who have gone to heaven: {Elijah, Jesus}. Neither member of that set was a Democrat at the time. 

So, yeah, the teacher is a bully. But she's right.

Part of it is the doing of the "right wing entertainment complex" and the echo chamber it created. The teacher pretty much doesn't know any better. She has been brainwashed by the 24/7 propoganda fed to her. To her, as with many like her, debate is no longer about ideas but rather villifying your opponent and trying to scare others to your side by using arguments that are based on emotion rather than logic. Of course when the ideas you argue against are stuff like feeding hungry children and giving the poor medical care in order to help those who do not need any help, I guess you have to. 

Not justifying it by any means. How an educator with a college degree can susplend all critical thought and willingly allow it to happen is beyond me, but it is their fault since there is enough information openly available to know better.
