teachers are dumb http://www.kansas.com/mld/kansas/15557585.htm dont get me wrong, my mother was a teacher for 25 years the vast majority of wich was served in kansas. i've lived in kansas my whole life (hell i even lived in salina for a year). there's the intelligent design/evolution thing that came up in our schools recently i wont even go into that. teachers get paid too little. teachers get little support from parents (i have several personal stories about this that i wont go into). teaching in general is an unappreciated profession. blah blah blah what ever... my point (i have one) is this: how many freaking years was this idiot in school to be a teacher? i learned in a kansas public school (most likely grade school) that needle sharing = bad. did he miss that day. does somebody have to make a prereq class needle sharing 101? i was young and still in school when aids hit the media big. all the schools started teaching about it and needle sharing and sexually transmitted disease earlier than they typically had up to that time. what i'm ranting and raving and trying to say is "what the hell?" how does this happen? are we so desperate for teachers that we let morons teach? i hadnt realized it had gotten that bad. ps. when looking for this story in internet form (saw on news last night) i found this. so that made me feel better somehow.
