Oh, the many times Ive graded a stack of essays and wanted to stamp that on most of them, though my students are quite a bit older. It would be a little too Randian, in my opinion.
The kids does kinda looks like a loser, though.
Damn, F- for being a loser on grammar myself.
That is what I mean. While on one hand I should perhaps be more patient with ESL, I also teach kids who have had mandatory ESL classes for nearly 10 years by the time I see them, so when they can't connect a noun to a adjective after that much time, my true and honest opinion is that they are idiots and don't deserve much of my time. Especially considering I'm nearly fluent in their language after only 2 years.
Sigh. And the icing on the cake is that the good students are a bunch of annoying Tracy Glicks. I got to get into grad school so I can teach at university.
In Korea, where I'm at, you you don't test well in middle school, they ship you to a vocation high school and no college will ever accept you with a degree from one of those, so it's a tad different. You try joining in the losing battle giving kids a half way decent education and see how long it is before you become a cynic. I don't, in the end, condone this dudes action but I can't say I don't occasionally think the same damn thing when I see a class of 40 with 35 getting F's. Stupid modern kids what with their rap music and their makeout parties and grrrr, lawn, get of it!
Wait. Korea? Aren't you allowed to beat the students? I'm talking about the shitty American system.

You live in a place called "Buncombe County"; you are all losers by default.

this is his way of flirting with her, much like the ways i used to punch my crush on the arm in the 1st grade

Man, if a teacher wrote that on one of my assignments in sixth grade I would probably cry.
I did, but the school-board didn't think you could handle the stress.

...And ignroant pigfuckers will still cling to their "Dem schools are all about SELF-ESTEEM and CODDLING and BEING NICE and POLICTICAL CORRECTNESS!" strawmen.

I had a teacher who had a "gotcha!" stamp that he would use whenever someone got an F on a test. But he had to stop using it because a parent complained.
lolol now i wanna become a teacher for the sole fact that i can insult kids with stamps.
If I had more stars, I would give them to Sacks5thAvenButt
if your stars will lead me to the "be a teacher" line, i will gladly accept them

Saying someone has a "Controversial style" is PC talk for saying he is an asshole. I mean this in a general sense, and not just in this case specifically.
Just for your edification, using the term "PC" and its derivatives in anything less than disdainful quotation marks is basically confessing that you're an abnormally tall pile of shit that walks like a man.

I hate to be Gattobot, but after I read his book, part of me that wants to tag everyone of these videos and stories with John Gatto so we can keep track of the insanity that is schooling.
Give the man some money to make a documentary.
I'm in favor of closing every institution in which people sometimes act like assholes to each other
I don't think Gatto ever recommended closing down all the schools. The main thrust of his argument is that no person, big or small, should be forced to 'learn' in a school environment, since anybody being forced to do something invariably learns how to cope with the situation, instead of actually benefiting from the material. So basically, all of the vaunted "smart" people in the class just lucked out and have a brain that stores a bunch of information and recall it easily, whereas the "losers" have a harder time of it, and find other ways of coping (ie. giving up because fuck you guys for making me into a monkey-puppet). John Holt also wrote a couple of good books on the subject; How Children Fail and How Children Learn. There's nothing wrong with an education per se, it's just the whole "Do it or we'll fucking ruin you." mindset that goes along with it that does the damage. I know, right? Crazy idea, that we shouldn't enslave children to meet our own agendas. THAT'S NUTS. And again: not saying education should be illegal, it just shouldn't be compulsory.

On the one hand, it shouldn't be a teacher's job to sugar coat your fails, but how are personal insults and throwing someone's pencil box necessary? I love grade school teachers who think that they're "relating" to their students by being bullies. That's code for "sad old douche who thinks he's friends with popular sixth graders".
|rustedmutt - 2010-03-14 |
Shit like this really fucks with a little kid. That teacher should be booted out on the goddamn street and sodomized by rabid coyotes.
Five trillion stars for utter evil.

Jesus christ, do you really need to pick on a little girl? Usually the boys are better at being little shits, try picking on a bully.

Dude's just trying to make sure the girl doesn't grow up to be dumb white trash like her mom. Rex Rolland: An American Hero.

This guy is pretty much the best teacher ever.
|twinkieafternoon - 2010-03-14 |
I'm the cool teacher, man! I use the hippest terms from only the most mainstream MTV channels to call my students names that they can relate to, so they know I'm just joshin'. It's cool, because I need them to feel hip, and they need me for whatever it is I offer!
They should write on his pink slip "-20% of his projected life earnings for being a LOSER." I bet he complains if they do.
Dock his paycheck for being a square

But with that woman as her mother, how could she *possibly* be a loser?
5 stars because for all we know, this little girl could be the biggest pain in the ass in the world, and the guy could have been letting off steam. If she's acting up in class, it's not like he can write "suck it, you little bitch".
Or he's just a tremendous asshole and not getting paid enough. Either way, bitterness wins!
|bopeton - 2010-03-15 |
Yeah but... is she a loser?
|Braze - 2010-03-15 |
I paused to try to see the paper and all I can make out is the giant word ISLAM
Now I am really curious about this!
