Answers to now are boring or what you'd expect from a board of far left kooks.

My grandfather invented the technique by which the bottom end of a toothpaste tube is folded over and pinched shut, so that every time someone polishes their pearly whites, I get a nickel.


Other than that, I'm in sales.

He could always get a job with the Detroit School Board. This was an email sent by Otis Mathis, President of the Detroit School Board. Mr. Mathis admits he has a problem with English. He actually had to sue his college to have them drop their English requirements so he could graduate.


Do DPS control the Foundation or outside group? If an outside group control the foundation, then what is DPS Board row with selection of is director? Our we mixing DPS and None DPS row's, and who is the watch dog?

I also found that funny as hell. I'm going to enjoy my mini vacation from work. . .it's funny how the conservative board has an exotic dancer on it, but those paragons of tolerance doesn't have anyone even close. :p

But yeah, I'm studying to be a teacher too...*facepalm*, anyone else feeling the futility of education courses?

That's actually a really good article that sums up a lot of the problems with DPS. It doesn't really trash Mathis on a personal level, either, it just puts everything out there.

The teachers right now are all upset about something Robert Bobb (the governor's appointed watchdog for the district) is about to do-it might be the school closings. The teachers are dragging the parents into it, which is one of those things I hate about teachers' unions. There's some big meeting the teachers are having with the community today.

BTW, I wasn't taking a shot at Mathis when I posted this. It wouldn't be right to attack him on this shortcoming. With that said, it must be a huge embarrassment to a number of people within the school system every time this man opens his mouth or picks up a pen. :o

I always advise people who want to go into education to get their bachelors in their content subject and then get a masters in education. You're right though - my education courses were the most worthless ones I took. They required the least in effort, in rigor, and have by and large been useless to me in the classroom. The only thing I got out of most of them were great arguments with my profs and my fellow student. :D

I'm getting too old to be stuck in school for too much longer. I have enough "extra courses" in History/Theatre/Art/English that I potentially could teach any of these on their own. I just need the bullshit courses that show what my momma, my co-workers, my boyfriend and everyone short of God Himself knows.

But the argument part sounds fun. :D
