Ladies and Gentlemen-
I may have just distilled the entire teaching universe down to 10 talking points. See what you think. Let me know.
TOP TEN REASONS YOU MAY NOT WANT TO BE A TEACHER
10) Become object of widespread public scorn;
9) Dignity offered as sacrifice to unholy lovechild of Bill Gates and Michelle Rhee;
8) Lazy, whiny, stupid, absent and/or unprepared students (which studies have shown to be the fault of teachers);
7) Need to use the bathroom? Great!! Your planning period is in two hours;
6) Lazy, whiny, stupid, absent and/or unprepared parents (are the responsibility of teachers);
5) 28-year old vice principals;
4) Rampant rubric fetishism and the glory of low-quality data;
3) In ironic twist, higher order thinking no longer needed;
2) Compulsory attendance at most ridiculous, unnecessary meetings on planet (no joke);
1) Work with children and be treated like one, too!
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
