I've long thought how cool it would be to take a year and teach in Britain on an exchange program. I could immerse myself in my distant heritage while also making a living. There are several programs that make such a thing possible. It would be even better if I could take my son with me, even if only for a semester, so he could experience living in another country.
But if this is how bad things have gotten in British schools, forget it. I'd better not hear the f-bomb 5 times all school year, much less 5 times in one class from one student. I hope Kimberly is right--that *has* to be a joke.
