    That's why I thought it was hilarious. Heard it mentioned on the highly recommended overnight RedEye Radio podcast this morning.

    Mercy! What next ...

    At what age they were potty trained and finally out of diapers?

    You never can tell, might just indicate a future slow learner or at least someone with poor motor skills!

    Will they throw him under the bus or stick with him?
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    That was Stephen Miller at 8. I was always trying to get him to clean up his desk
    Show me a kid in the Second grade who is neat. I'll show you a kid who was potty trained WAY too early in life and will spend a lifetime in counseling.

    we didn't have glue sticks in those days
    Didn't have glue sticks in 1993?

    I remember them when I was in elementary school back in 1982.

    At the end of the year, I wrote all my concerns — and I had a lot of them — in his school record.
    I'm not sure that is even legal.

    When the school principal had a conference with Stephen's parents, the parents were horrified. So the principal took some white-out and blanked out all my comments. I wish I could remember what I wrote, but this was 25 years ago.
    And from FERPA information site.

    However, while the FERPA amendment procedure may be used to challenge facts that are inaccurately recorded, it may not be used to challenge a grade, an opinion, or a substantive decision made by a school about a student.
    And, this "Teacher" would be breaking the law if they disclosed anything in that file.

    Was going over a blog I occasionally follow by Anne Althouse. A former teacher and lawyer in Wisconsin.

    She had this to say about this article.

    Teachers want us to believe that they love children and care for and support them. They have — through the compulsion of the state — the opportunity to observe them and interact with them for long hours and many days in their formative years. To trust teachers in that role, we need to believe that if they saw that our child was a loner and isolated and off by himself all the time, their heart would go out to our poor little child, and they'd talk with us and try to help. Or maybe we would wonder whether the teacher understands psychological diversity. Why is she tagging our child as "a loner" rather than appreciating the introvert or trying to figure out if there's some unseen burden making the child withdrawn? The teacher shouldn't be like another one of the children, who decide that a kid is a weirdo and shun him. But imagine a teacher who remembers the children she thought about as a weirdo, waited decades, and when that fellow human being achieved some success in his adult life, she wrote a newspaper column to tell the world "He was a loner and isolated and off by himself all the time."

    This is Nikki Fiske, Stephen Miller's Third-Grade Teacher. Stephen Miller is a Trump political adviser. Maybe Nikki Fiske was lured into "writing" this article. I put "writing" in quotes because the byline is "Nikki Fiske, as told to Benjamin Svetkey." I hope she's dreadfully sorry at her terrible breach of a teacher's moral responsibility toward a child. I was a teacher for more than 30 years, and my students were all adults, but I have never — in all the tens of thousands of blog posts I've dashed off and published impulsively — even considered naming one of my students and saying something negative I thought I observed about their personality.

    I lasted as a teacher for one year and a quarter. I was so appalled at the immaturity of many of my fellow teachers (and I was only 21 at the time) that I left the wonderful world of education for the more reasonable world of business. What that teacher did doesn't surprise me at all. From my experience many teachers are of the liberal persuasion and wouldn't hesitate dissing a conservative. There are some really good teachers out there, but she isn't one of them.

    So it took a kid who 'ate' paste in the 3rd Grade to remind Jim Acosta that the 'Statue Of Liberty quote' wasn't added till 1903.

    As if Bartholdi knew, in 1883, his sculpture wasn't supposed to be a symbol of July 4, 1776, even though he carved that date on 'her' tablet.

    If, like me, his withdrawing was an avoidance response to bullies, she made herself one with this article. Regardless, if asked about the article he should say that it isn't worthy of a response.

    The teacher who claimed this week that controversial White House aide Stephen Miller ate glue as a kid has been suspended from her job.
    That sentence is pretty much the only news in this TDB article. She should be canned, but I won't be holding my breath.

    At lunch after a morning of professional development where, like so many other PDs I've been to, teachers act amazingly similar to students they complain about when put into a desk.
