Schools of Education

I was all prepared to write something snarky, full of examples/vignettes/anectdotes, and someone writes something serious on the topic:

I'll have to take my pot-shots at ed schools another time.

You are a waste of my money.

You got to go to an elite school so you can teach pimple faced teenagers algebra, while your country is at war. Did they train you to defend our country rather than polute it with your Republican agenda?

Typical Bush Backer.

All talk. No walk.

Ah, Anonymous. Welcome back. We've missed you.

Speaking as one of those pimple faced teenagers (actually, I've been using this moistuerizing cream lately and... uhhh... nevermind), and a liberal one at that, I can honestly say I don't mind said school-polluting. Slightly more interesting than algebra at least, and good food for contemplation every once in a while.

Are you familiar with the concept of contemplation? Giving something serious thought before expressing an opinion on it? It's a nice little habit to have, contemplating is. ;-)

(Obviously I'm very, very bored. Nice little blog, though. A little rhetoric-y for my tastes, but most blogs are, so We Press On. Buy the ticket, take the ride, as I believe Hunter S. Thompson said.

Perhaps I should just contemplate sleep.)

What subject do you teach, Darren? Is it actually algebra?

Darren said...

Pre-algebra, Algebra II, and Pre-calculus (a combination of trig and math analysis, according to the state's K-12 math standards). I notice that you teach calculus....
