That's not even the point. No teacher would even dare ask their students to write that without an agenda in mind. There's no place for this kind of garbage in elementary schools.
I love seeing people comment on the money we make haha. You have no clue what you're commenting on.
Who gives a shit honestly? What a non story, teachers do weird stuff all the time
A Texas teacher was replaced after delivering a monologue to her Spanish class about her unusual spiritual beliefs, which included asserting that she is
He is spot on. And like I said, it wouldnt be pleasant for the teacher if he/she made my
kid do that
Such an internet tough guy.
Please please tell me what the hell you would do about it. I'm dying to know. Would you just go to the school board and complain? They would laugh their ass off the second you walked out of the room. You realize there is nothing you could do right?
Teachers aren't trying to indoctrinate anybody. We don't get paid enough to give 2 shits what your political affiliation or opinions are.
If you really were upset, and wanted to get your point across, why not just say you would ask the teacher why she chose to do the assignment and what standards are being met. But no, instead, you make it seem like you would just try to bully somebody. Which is so counter productive because the only thing I've read is essentially "I have a 3 inch penis"
Again, not being tough....just stating that the teacher would have a face full of me demanding answers. That isn't being tough, that is a fact.
Like I said to CMXI, it has nothing to do with being tough. You or any other teacher will not teach my kid whatever you believe in. And yes, that teacher would give me some answers one way or the other.
This wasn't just some critical thinking exercise, there is some agenda behind it.
And what would you do if the teacher told you to get out of his/her face, and that he/she wouldn't give you any answers?
I guess then I would get the principal. One way or another I would get answers. I'm sure I'm not the only person that feels this way.
I personally don't see how you read that article and thought the teacher was just trying to indoctrinate students.
Parental feedback is the most useless feedback. Just FYI. And odds are, once the standards are pointed out, you have absolutely no argument other than your own personal agenda.
Jeff isn't much of a critical thinker. No offense meant, but he is one of those people that right wing media can manipulate by visceral feelingsbecause he is too lazy to use his brain.
I agree its a strange subject for 4th grade. But given the way most Americans willingly gave up the principles of habeas corpus and rights to privacy since 9-11, it is certainly a valid question in the 21st century. It is also a current event considering the rapid expansion of drone use over US airspace in the next 10 years.
Americans have given up rights during the Civil War, WW2 and post 9-11. It is likely the people that aren't cognizant of these facts are the ones that view this teacher as part of some fascist conspiracy.
I am wondering what actions Jeff took after the Patriot Act was passed? Im sure he wrote a threatening letter to his Senator expressing Ben Franklins sentiments that..."They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Oh wait he probably said that Patriot Act is confusing, so I'll wait for my boy Bill O"Rielly to give me my opinion,, until then, I'm gonna get baked, play some Halo, and complain about freeloaders while my parents pay my rent.
Yes, you are correct about me being in school. There ya go again just like Marshall Nole said you would do....trying to talk down to someone because you are behind your keyboard. LOL
You are entitled to believe what you want just as I am.....and that wasn't a critical thinking exercise. If you don't like my opinion...get over it.
You doubt any father's response to this? He didn't come off "tough", just parental.
It was a critical thinking exercise whether you want to accept it or not. Whether you appreciate it or not is your personal prerogative.
I am talking down to you because you are stupid.
You and Marshall Nole are stupid.
Feel free to elucidate your opinion in a complete paragraph about what you find offensive about what this teacher did.
Being stupid and getting upset because other people call you stupid isn't a defense.
Lets hear your opinions... in complete sentences.
What is so offensive about this classroom exercise?
And how do you feel about giving up your rights to privacy to "keep America safe"
Cmon, do some thinking here.
Lol at the guy threating to beat up a 4th grade teacher talking about being tough behind a keyboard. I would call you stupid in person if it made you feel better. I have never been in a fistfight that started out by calling someone "dumb" or "stupid" either. If I was being tough I would call you a faggat.
I still don't understand the big deal, really. What bad has happened (or will happen) from kids writing that sentence?
I see no possible point to this assignment other than to open a investigation into this teacher's methods. Being a engineer/OPs kind of guy, I tend to look at the root cause. I believe the root cause is in fact public education. I am not saying that some tax money shouldn't go to educating children, but I do think the near monopoly the public schools have should be broken.
Vouchers and caring parents/guardians... The first part is simple, allow parents to choose whether or not to send their kid to school A or B. School chosen gets the $. The problem is the later part, I have no idea how to do this and unfortunately it is key in making part 1 work (informed consumer who gives a shit).
So you're proposing that, instead of the tax money going directly back into the education system, the amount of money that each child is "worth" (so to speak) is given to the family as a voucher and, in turn, given to the school that they choose to attend?
Bump for a real response.
One other question for argument's sake (and likely more pertinent than my last): How would libs feel if a teacher had the students write
"I am willing to sacrifice governmental control to preserve my constitutional rights, even if it means I am more likely to be shot by a child playing with his father's gun."
"Sad though it may be, Sandy Hook was an isolated incident, and I prefer that politicians not make emotional, short sighted, knee-jerk reactions that infringe on my long-term constitutional rights."
Oh lord don't get me started...
