Ugh, education is such a mess in this country, which is why I'm never having kids. Teachers should be paid like doctors and lawyers, then held accountable to professional standards similar to doctors and lawyers. Continuing education, ethical guidelines, etc. Of course, the parallels aren't exact - customers don't usually have a choice in teachers, but then, teachers don't have to take out malpractice insurance.

But still, treating a teacher with professional respect and appreciation for their chosen career, instead of as an interchangeable cog dispensing prepackaged "knowledge" and autocratic "discipline" would go a long way towards improving classroom instruction in this country. And it would eliminate crap like "teaching the test" and these incredibly expensive and bullshiat tutoring programs. Yes, a teacher must be held accountable, but this rigid, formula-based performance evaluation is not only unworkable, it's demeaning.

But fark those guys at HSBC, too - every one of 'em should've been doing 20 years and forfeiting all of their assets.

Warlordtrooper: feckingmorons: Are you suggesting that those who are accused of breaking the law shouldn't be arrested simply because they didn't launder money?

Are you suggesting that those who are accused of breaking the law shouldn't be arrested simply because it was a conspiracy and they acted in concert so they are not individually responsible.

Their actions as alleged in the charging documents are illegal, unethical and done solely for personal gain - for bonuses, for promotions, for job security. They should be arrested and tried just like anyone else who is accused of committing a crime.

Do you really believe that changing a few things on a piece of paper should get years in jail?


So you don't care that the bankers got away with it. You just think teachers should be able to cheat without consequenses too. How about no.

Nobody is suggesting any of those things, but it is nice to see you living up to your handle.

You seem like a simpleton.

How cute. Now run along and play while the adults talk.


Your parents must be pleased they raised a child with so much.... well something I'm sure. It is not the ability to have a well reasoned discussion.

I'll let you go now, the guy at the counter wants no salt on his fries so you'll have to drop a new basket.

The maximum penalty available under the law should be applied to international drug money launderers.

The penalties recently levied against HSBC about a month's worth of income and no jail time.

Therefore all lesser crimes should simply incur a fine of that amount or less.
