Oh so funny. Sadly, so true. Except for the Asians.
As a fermer teecha ah agrea.
Stirrin the B.S.
Rush will always tell you that the best humor is grounded in truth – it’s funny because it’s real – this was hilarious….sadly.
My wife is a teacher and she will agree 100% with this clip.
Another reason I’m grateful for the Catholic schools I attended first through twelfth grades. Those nuns and teachers NEVER had these attitudes. Attitudes, yes, but not THESE attitudes.
@ scribble. To this day. I can never see a nun, without my knuckles aching. Metal stripped wooden rulers, are the Marquis de Sades own invention.
Twelve years of Catholic school and never struck with a ruler.
I had awesome nuns who were on the phone with my mom every week the year I was acting up.
I have to agree with Plain Jane. Never hit with a ruler either. I also never saw anyone else hit with a ruler. I did have a blackboard eraser whiz past my head (that nun could have pitched for the Yankees). Luckily I ducked, ala George Bush.
And Plain Jane, I acted up like you did and those nuns also let my mom know. I think the difference from then and now is that we were taught morals and respect and we were expected to act appropriately. My teachers took their lessons seriously and helped each child who was having trouble – and we had 40 in a classroom. That’s why I have never vote to increase a school tax. It’s BS what teachers complain about today.
I’d like to see the video of the parents who have to call the school once a week to talk to the principal about why the so-called science teacher is talking about how awful Rush Limbaugh is or the LA teacher who spends his class time promoting gay marriage or why the AP Euro teacher never questions the drek that’s in her primary texts. Oh, yeah. These are Goverment Skool teachers.
Bullhockey. This is supposed to be funny, but what it really is is great propaganda for the NEA.
Boo-hoo, only $800 a week. Gee, I wonder how much the parent makes?
It’s not your fault the kid is an idiot? Then who’s is it? Kid doesn’t know geography? You were paid to teach it to that child.
Don’t like it? Then QUIT. A lot of folks would love to home school or send there kid to a private school. You and your union do everything in your power to stop parents from doing just that. Just quit and see how you do making a living in the real world with no tenure and actually having to perform and produce productive results.
So I watch this and I’m supposed to giggle and say, Gee wiz, maybe they have a point. Bullhockey again. That’s what propaganda is supposed to do – get in under your defenses, and make you sympathetic.
Sorry public school teacher. If you want sympathy, check the dictionary. You’ll find it right between shit and syphilis…

I love the graffiti on the PC monitors. Yep, your tax dollars at work.
And another thing!
If teaching is such a drag, why don’t they go back to skool — trade in their “education” degrees for something they can work (supposedly) half as hard at twice the pay? Oh yeah, that would probably mean a non-union job with no life-long benes and super-sized pensions.
Rats. “send there kid to a private school” should be “their”. Darn public education. Mom and dad should have sent me to a private school…
It’s true. The problem with education is the homes where there’s no father figure or the parents don’t teach their kids a thing except how to turn off the XBox.
Teacher salaries are public information and I regularly check the web site to see how much the teachers I meet or here about are paid. My neighbor who’s a teacher makes $65K and takes off so many days from work I can’t f’in believe it.
My co-worker’s teacher wife makes $75k. Isn’t this for about 9 months work?
So what’s this BS about $800 a week?
And the union contracts guarantee huge increases on an aggressive schedule whether the economy is imploding or not.
Teachers make a lot of money, get incredible benefits (like totally free health care), and have a cushy life in general. We’re right to expect better performance out of them.
NOBODY HAS IT BETTER.
Occasionally a classroom at my school actually had three grades combined under one nun, but most often the classrooms were two classes combined under one nun.
There always seemed to be at least 40 or more kids in our classrooms.
The nuns emphasized the important subjects and pretty much (as I look back) eliminated the b.s.
@Plain Jane – I like that – “eliminated the bs.” That is so true.
@Plain Jane – that must have been a small grade school. We had 120 per grade, divided into 3 classrooms. In 4th grade we started rotating classrooms for different subjects. And lining up to move to those different classrooms was a study in disciple itself.
$800 a week is low-end. The bulk of them make much more than that. And no mention of pensions & bennies & never being able to be fired (just moved laterally), rubber rooms for caught perv teachers (also moved laterally), and the upper management payrolls etc.?

Scribble, yes it sure was a small school. There were 12 in my 8th grade class.
When I went back to teach a primary grade at my old grade school, I found I had one grade of 42 kids. Fortunately it dwindled down to 39 by the first week of school.
I absolutely had to eliminate the b.s., but those kids got the kind of same kind of education I did. Fortunately, I hadn’t become corrupted by the university.
I had the nuns who were still teaching there cracking up. When my class walked into church, I snapped the rubber band on my missalette when it was time for them to genuflect all together before filing into the pews – I did everything just like the nuns taught us. Guess I could have been a drill sargent.
