FunkOut: Already went through all the planets with my 6 year old. Last month she came home from school and had been in a fight with another child who had claimed there was no such thing as desert foxes. Yesterday they sang a song about rainbows and the teacher told me my kid was objecting to the abscence of indigo and violet because they had been lumped together as purple.Teach your child science early and you'll find they're arguing with people.
buckler: I know some kids are going to jerk around with the interviewer for a laugh, but some kids are just irretrievably stupid. Case in point: I was supervising a group of kids, and we were headed out to the field to play some games one day. One kid, who I'd already mentally tagged as being pretty dumb, stopped to squash a bunch of mushrooms."Tom," I said, "I'm gonna need you to go to the restroom and wash your hands, and stop smushing up mushrooms.""But why?" He asked."Because you don't know what kind of mushrooms these are. The mushrooms you get at the store are tasty and safe to eat, but mushrooms growing wild can be poisonous. They can make you very sick, or even kill you if you eat them or get the juice on you.""Oooh," he said, before innocently licking his hands clean to "wash" them.
timujin [TotalFark]OnlyM3: Obviously teachers deserve raises.Maybe if we offered a decent wage for teachers, we'd get a higher caliber of applicants.
