That thread where I said you hated Christianity and not just organized religion....^^This post coupled with your posts in the London Beheading thread proves my point.
It's not either or. A masters in edu is a completely different animal, than say, having a masters in applied mathematics.
I just looked at my HS's current faculty... LUTZ. Tons of people I actually went to school with, which is really bizarre, but it's definitely not a sampling of the best and brightest. Not even close. And it's a CA Distinguished School in one of the best districts in CA. Looks like most also have a Master's in Ed though.
Now if I were to look at the nearest private day school, the faculty could double for one at Cal. PHD's all over the place.
So you don't agree it's wrong to give the option for students to be excused during the evolution portion of the curriculum because their parents don't believe in it? What if a kid's parents were white supremacists and wanted their child excused from the Holocaust portion of their history curriculum because they said it never happened and was just a building block of the Zionist movement (which some people apparently do believe, by the way)?
Either let these teacher teach the material and educate your kids (read: do their jobs) and sit with your fingers in your ears at home or home school them (or find a private school more aligned with your worldview). But handicapping educators isn't solving anything.
They have great husbands that are hard right republican!
Let's get really real here, you are a glorified baby sitter who is grossly underpaid. We definitely get it.
I went to public through middle school and was fortunate enough to go to private for HS. One of the biggest differences I noticed was the teachers in private were largely, highly educated in the subject they taught whereas a lot of the public school teachers held education degrees. Not that either is the right/wrong way to do it.
I didn't say that at all.
I was pointing out that he hates Christianity even though he's denied it. I don't have an opinion on it either way.
You got a problem with flip flops?
Just the 'Big whoop, wanna fight about it?' part.
Paddy Tanninger the Caddy Manager - yeah it rhymes!
Him saying you have sex with dudes is not homophobic though is this you wishing he was gay so he could give you some sand paper hand reach-arounds?
I did the reverse of that. I was lucky enough to go to a pretty good public high school and by sticking in the honors/AP classes I felt like I got to interact with a number of quality teachers, but generally I think it's correct to assume that private schools will have a higher quality of educator than public schools; there's a reason you have to get accepted and pay to attend them.
I was waiting on the glorified babysitter post. If that is what you think all teachers are than I guess you homeschool or will homeschool your children.
I definitely would not home school my children, should I plan on having them.
In the London beheading thread I'm saying it's silly to act like there aren't violent extremists in every religion. In this thread, I'm saying it's stupid to teach a kid any religious concept under the guise of actual science. Read it how you want to, but neither of those things support your hilarious belief that I just have a vendetta against Christianity.
I feel sorry for his eventual kids. So much of a child's education is enhanced and focused by additional learning at home to boost the desire and ability to learn in school, and clearly az's kids will miss out on that. Potentially a prime example of crappy parenting at work.
In HS, I took an East Asian history course taught by a retired Army Ranger and history professor at the Air Force Academy. A lot of his service was actually being emerged in rural, East Asian communities for long periods of time. Dude was awesome.
I also took a 50's and 60's US History course taught by an independently wealthy, middle aged gay man. He was cool too.
Just some examples of the major differences and I'm thankful I was able to go to school there.
While generally correct, the differences can be hilarious. I went to public school, but in high school I dated a girl who went to a private academy. The academy billed itself as a great private school, but in my class, my public school sent 50 kids to Ivy League schools and the academy's valedictorian ended up at Bucknell. Good public schools can be absolutely amazing for students.
Bucknell is a pretty damn good school. Is it Ivy? No, but REALLY good... Your school sent 50 kids in one year?
I had some great, great, highly influential teachers in public school, but they were not the norm at all. Your experiences I've heard many times from the private school kids - worth every penny spent imo.
Very true. There are always exceptions to the "rule" and more often than not it's WAY more about the kid's drive and passion for learning than we give it credit for. I think that's the real problem, honestly. We've just created a world where school is "boring" and "lame" and for "nerds" and too many kids don't want to invest their time in it. I mean I enjoyed having a good time in college, don't get me wrong, but there was definitely a lot more partying than there was learning going on for a lot of students. Obviously there were also plenty of us who could do both, but you get my point. Making learning desirable again is crucial IMO.
"Let's sit on the internet midweek and talk about how much free time liberals have, that'll show them."
I-STEM education will change all of that. Learning and teaching will be fun again. The creativity and innovation needed to not only create engaging units in school for students to participate in but also learn these units has completely gone away due to standardized tests, NCLB, etc. There is a reason why most youth today hate math. They were not taught math in a way that shows them how applicable it is in the real-world.
