(Opposing Views)   I mean, all you do is let a few kids share a few needles and someone has to go and freak out and next thing you know, the school says you can't teach there anymore. Where's the spirit of adventure?   (opposingviews.com) divider line 36

She's Blackanese.

If I were a parent I'd freak out. That teacher should be fired and sued and taken out back and beat with a tire iron.

The only problem is that she was reusing needles even after "sterilization".  High school students/teachers don't know enough about sterilization to do a perfect job, plus disposable needles are cheap.

She knows jack shiat about sterilization. Sounds like she might as well have licked them clean.

For what she wanted to do, lancets would work; even cheaper.

Not if you want to give an issue to each kid. That shiat adds up fast.

As opposed to putting them in alcohol?  Which is what it says she did?

Got to say that I remember that in primary school (ages ago as I'm ancient), we did do a quick test to see what blood type we were (or not)... it wasn't a very good test, but we did use new single use needles.

To be a teacher and not understand that, does mean that she shouldn't be one.... like seriously.. come on.

This should be an asinine tag for the teacher, because that is beyond dumb.

..as a safety measure, of course.  Your heart would explode and your eyes will bleed when you find out about all of the other spooky germs and viruses out there.

I was expecting the article to be about another teacher getting high and sexing up the kids, not another resource strapped teacher being thrown under the bus because a snowflake melted.

I am doing my best not to raise snowflakes, but I would be none to pleased if this happened at a school my children attended.

As far as resource strapped teacher the only resource she was short of was grey matter.

There is a bright side. The  article stated that she is now pursuing her Doctorate degree.

Freaking out is a bit much (but then again... the worse case scenario IS possible)...

Being very upset and demanding an inquiry, and ensuring that no one has ended up exposed to a disease is something that should be the result, among the sacking of the teacher.

It's easy to go and state that it's a minor thing, but as a parent, IF it did turn out that your kid does end up sick over this, you're the one stuff footing the bills, your kid having to suffer with whatever they caught, and if it's something that's a lifetime thing, you'll have to deal with it forever.

Seriously... it's not about "snowflakes" here, it's about common sense.  When you consider that the number of social diseases has skyrocketed in teens, would you really feel 100% certain that your kid wouldn't have been exposed?

It's bad enough when it's lice, deal with that first, then imagine something that's permanent and can injure your kid, over the stupidity of a teacher... maybe you'll understand that "freaking out" is actually understandable.

This isn't about catching a cold or even getting strep throat. This is about big scary diseases like HIV and hepatitis. And it's also about the level of negligence of the teacher. This wasn't accidental exposure but deliberate dumbfarkery.

First, 100 lancets costs $2.00 so that would have solved the problem of the reusing of the needles.
http://www.amazon.com/Safety-Seal-Lancets-30g-Sterile/dp/B0016NK5DM/ re f=sr_1_3?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1383151230&sr=1-3&keywords=lancets

Secondly, when I was in school we did this same thing to test our blood type.  We also tested our blood sugar and cholesterol in another class.  But we each had a clean lancet for each testing. I was in school twenty years ago, but even back then, the teachers knew better than to reuse needles.

We also had a sociology class in which we each cut a lock of our hair and put in a metal bowl and the teacher set it on fire so we would know what the Nazi concentration camps were like (yeah, I know).

I'm not siding with the teacher, I am siding with your first sentence.  It's another story where some petty "naw don't do that" type of reprimand (student or teacher) is blown up to be a news story.  I just get annoyed at the "what  might have happened" type hysteria.  She wasn't hanging kids by their feet from the roof she was just using what was available and   thought she was being safe by "sterilizing" the needle between use.  If things happened as stated the risk is probably about the same as freaking out because the teacher let them go outside because lighting has been known to strike.

Wtf? This is for a high school honors bio?

We pricked our thumbs and tested for blood type and rh factor in my 7th grade dumb kid science class.

And that a biology teacher didn't think there was an issue with sharing needles is sad.

Are you comparing the risk of being struck by lightning to the risk of sharing needles?  A more apt example would be if it were actively storming out and the teacher decided to take them for a swim.  Sure, statistically, they'll PROBABLY be safe, but anyone that stupid can't be around children unsupervised.  No one is saying she was malicious, they're saying she's negligently incompetent.  You don't go "oopsie daisy" when a teacher deliberate allows kids to inject another person's blood into them.

Only if the outside is a flat field, and have them hold a 15 feet high metal pole, and giving them socks with those non-slip rubber pads under as protection.

This isn't a random chance thing, this is about telling the kids to stick themselves with needles that others have actually used.

As I mentioned, the number of diseases has been fairly high and increasing in the teen population.

Good point, I forgot the part where the teacher was having the kids inject each others blood into themselves.   Actually I missed the part where the teacher really wasn't a teacher at all, she was an impostor who was actually a Nazi scientist!

Better than nothing.

But that's not how you sterilise medical equipment really.

I don't believe that but saying "She's so stupid that she might as well have licked them." seemed like unnecessary hyperbole.  What she did was wrong and she was fired for it.

And even then the risk is absurdly minuscule.

I know it sounds horrifically dangerous but an alcohol cleaned lance is pretty safe even if it was used to scoop up feces and then used on 100 hiv infected IV druggies.

Agreed... it's a bit reaching, but the point is that wiping something with alcohol and expecting a 100% sterilization is asinine.

As a teacher, she should know this, and her being fired is very well justified.

Well, do it for the number or students involved and get back to me.

Personally, unless the person is fully tested, I tend to go with assuming that they might be radiating with diseases.

I have a stupid immune system that makes me vulnerable (and my wife with MS is the same) and we catch things (colds, flues, stomach bugs) very easily, so I wouldn't want to put myself or anyone in my family in immediate risk.

And as far as alcohol being a disinfectant, she'd be better to have used a jar filled with bleach, then neutralized with vinegar.  Or have some boiling water and drop the needles for 5 to 10 minutes, and then use alcohol. (or all of the above, one after the other)

But still as per the other farker's image... used needles get dull and riddles with spots that bacteria and viruses could hide in, so using a sharpening stone coated with proper disinfectant would be a bare minimum to re-using a needle as to grind the imperfections out (and so the hiding spots).

I'm not trying to white knight heroin addicts or anything, but junkies are probably more keenly aware of the dangers of sharing needles than most anyone.

I used to date a teacher and it's downright shocking how dumb most of them are.  A handful at her school were pretty sharp but most weren't very bright.  More than a handful were downright dumb.

biatch deserves to be fired. How farking stupid can you be? And she teaches biology? What the hell happened, did she skip "Bloodborne Pathogen Day" at University of Phoenix?

If she wasn't capable of enough rational thought to know that having random kids reuse needles was a horrible idea, she has no place in the classroom, period.
