The public school teachers in my town went back on duty today. Students won’t arrive till Tuesday, but the teachers were treated to inspirational speeches from administrators: “You have a unique opportunity . . . ,” “One of the most challenging and rewarding careers anywhere . . . ,” “Let me tell you a story about a lonely little girl who didn’t think she could do math . . . ,” “Think of a teacher who made YOU feel special . . . ,” etc.
Anyway, I arrived home feeling extremely inspired. Know what I mean? And I checked my email to find a long-time correspondent had sent me the latest findings from The Onion, on the subject of Students Who Just Don’t [Care]. I’ll bet that the masses of assembled teachers would have found great value in this video clip. Enjoy. (Warning: NSFS–Not Suitable for School)
