Public schools

Posted: January 26, 2007 in Uncategorized

I always said if I had a kid it would NOT go to public school. I taught in a public high school for 4+ years. What an eye opening experience. Were there good kids? Yeah. Were there good days? Sure. But too few and too far in between. Every day was about survival. Pure and simple. I remember the daily anxiety. Making sure lessons and paperwork was all ready. Contingency plans for behavioral issues. Meetings. After school meetings. Conferences. Personality conflicts with other staff because they felt ‘threatened’ by yours truly. I don’t suppose their own personal problems and incompetence on the job could be the problem but I digress. All that probably would have been tolerable except for the uniformed and armed police officer they put on staff. That’s when you know it’s gone completely down the shitter. My sis is a public school teacher and God bless her. I don’t know how she does it. For the last year or so my stomach was sick every am. But to the point. Yesterday in Clayton Co. Ga at a high school there was a bit of a fracas. You’ll have to copy/paste the links in this entry. My linking thingie isn’t working right. Probably operator error..

This is what is happening at public schools across the country. These places are no more than communist indoctrination centers. I remember it well. “It takes a village to raise a child” was the mantra. Everyone should be treated the same. Someone has a behavioral problem? It’s a disability and they can’t be punished because that wouldn’t be FAIR. So if someone reading this has children in public school I have this to say. You have no idea what goes on do you? Even in schools rated top performing. You think it was bad 10 or 20 years ago? Heck, when I was in school someone brought pop rocks and discharged them in the hall. Whoopdedo. Now it’s guns and knives. They are learning that this country is the worst and most dispised in the world. That people like Che and Marx are cool. Our founding fathers? Just a bunch of rich white slave owners. And if Hitlery Clintoon doesn’t get elected it’ll be because this country is made up of a bunch of sexist pigs. No matter that this woman is a liar and has been involved in criminal activity.

Schools are not about teaching academic subjects and preparing kids for the adult world. They are about being fair. Feelings. And setting kids up to fail. Because the real world isn’t about being fair. Or Feelings.

Nope…I would never have put my kid in public school.
