Insurgent: Lenny_da_Hog: Insurgent: you are describing recess. this is gym class.

Replacement gym class, which is "keep the kids active for 45 minutes by playing a game."

a game that involves sitting or standing still for as long as you can. again, how is this physical education? the goal is to find the best way to avoid physical activity.


It *isn't*. It's a music teacher playing with the kids for a little while because the gym teacher is out and they have to do *something* with the kids for that time.

Just like when a sub teacher walks in and sits at the desk and tells you to study or something for that class for the day. OMG! He's not teaching us biology! Burn him!" Big deal.

yes. the instructor was being lazy. what about the sandy hook part? is that liberal mouthpiece known as fox news making shiat up?

Q: Why was the pirate crumpy?

A: He had a Sandy Hook!

Seriously, that was one of the shiattiest, most uninformative articles I've seen in awhile. It's like a Fark comment that someone got paid for. Why was he playing hide and seek? What kind of "training" is this teacher undergoing that could possibly have any bearing on this? What was he "trying to teach them about Sandy Hook"? It's like this dude skimmed the news, re-posted about 1/10 of what he read, and then decided that counted as "reporting" the story.

At least the linked source story is a little better. This shiat reminds me of that "Yahoo Contributor" garbage we get saddled with, where they let any moron with a keyboard pretend to be a journalist, saving themselves a ton of money while deluding people into the mistaken belief that "anybody" can write news...

"The suspended teacher will have to undergo training, while the kids have been offered counselling."

Counselling? Really? 'Cuz a teacher pointed a finger at you and went, "bang?" Really? No wonder kids today are a bunch of bed-wetting sissies.

atomicmask: some schools even had gun clubs on campus.


Yep, We had a shooting course, on campus, where they provided us with rifles(bolt action .22s). And at the rural high school in my home town, it wasn't unusual to see rifle racks in the back windows of pickups...with a rifle or shotgun in it. And this was in the early to mid '80s.

WTH has happened to people in the last 20 years that causes them to crap their pants every time they see a firearm?

Statistically speaking, there are fewer deaths.

Are they traumatized yet?  It's unethical to stick a mic in their face until they're traumatized.

I remember my teacher talking about school killings in second grade (1970s). It was a lesson in how some people aren't nice. I thought he was a cool teacher but he didn't last. Conservative town.

We also learned how to draw classic cars in that class. Unfortunately I did not retain the skill.

davidphogan: I'd love to hear him explain why he thought this was a good idea?


fourthsword: So... He tried to teach children how to protect themselves by hiding from an active shooter?  He used a game to communicate with children....the need to hide, rather than be shot?!?  He tried to educate children, in the only way they would understand, how to protect themselves in the worst case scenario ?!?!  We should totally execute that guy!!!!


meh

Fear is based on the perception of danger.
Media makes money by exaggerating the risks.

Crime is down, by the numbers, but people are more fearful than ever.
So, yes, ignorance can be its own kind of bliss. We used to live in a much more dangerous society but saw no need for gun laws. The danger didn't affect most of the nation, it rarely heard about it.
The felt benefits of gun ownership outweigh the risks even more than they used to. But that isn't what you're told on the news.
You get a drumbeat of constant violence and danger.

It's safer now than it used to be, but everyone's afraid to go outside.

AverageAmericanGuy: Gosh. I hope those kids take advantage of the counseling being offered. I'd hate to think that one of these snowflakes was severely traumatized.


Someone formed a gun shape with their hand and said "bang" here at work a while ago.  I had to take a week off, and I'm still in therapy.

 a shooting spree is re-enacted for 6 year olds by a stranger brandishing a fake gun at them.


\Your usual teacher is sick so I'll be taking over the health class today.  Now, who'd like to come up and allow me to demonstrate a breast exam?

i think I heard that the CDC said there are something like 31,000 gun-related deaths in the US annually. Whether that number is going up, down, or isn't moving is irrelevant. That's a lot of deaths. Also, individual gun-related deaths and annual totals have been reported for decades. It's hardly a topic for which anyone can claim ignorance.

Probably not an age appropriate activity.  Maybe the PE teacher should have left sub plans.

About as many people are taken out by drunk drivers, and two thirds of that lot aren't suicidal or involved in criminal activities at the time.
These numbers are also published and you'd think its a well known thing, but you don't see many people avoiding cars or begging for solutions.

/You might if every news venue was highlighting the damage that alcoholics cause to this nation.
/There was a time when they did, and the result of public outcry and political action was prohibition.
/Things got worse, people realized the cure was more disastrous than the disease, and the laws were repealed.
/Moral of the story: Knowing the statistics doesn't mean you understand the true nature of your problem.
