Is it sad that it took me a bit to notice?
@Cynical Pancakes, you get an upvote cuz u gonna have a hard life
@robot santa, thanks dood
Throughout my experience in school during my lifetime, I've discovered that while teachers may not know everything, they act like they do, and while they're not always right, they act like they are. So the parent shouldn't be surprised when she realizes her child is smarter than their teacher.
@HFSA, I can confirm, throughout my years of Spanish, teachers would make grammar mistakes on worksheets and tests and I would always correct the grammar and then continue on with the sheet because that's the smart @ss that I am.
One time I had a teacher almost write me up for telling her Russia and Canada weren't continents
@Shadow Blazer XZ, there's vowels in there too you know.
We all make mistakes. Sadly some just stand out more than others.
"L is for Legalize weed"
Well...time to switch to homeschool
I don't get it
*puts "excellent handwritting and spelling" on resume*
One of my teachers refused to believe me when I said England was an island. I had to make her Google a picture
@Oneiric , England isn't an island. Great Britain is an island. England is just part of it along with Scotland and Wales.
Maybe they were testing the p#arents
@RobotFrog21, probably not but would be a cool test of awareness
No H,Q, or Z in the alphabet either. And ppl wunder y kids text liek dis.
@Chuck Shurley , you can tell the last part of the poster was cut off in the cropping of this pic, where those 3 letters would be.
@Francois Dillinger, That's the joke.
One time I pissed off my little brother because I told him his teacher is a moron. He was asking where my teaching degree is, so I just told him how much harder engineering is (I'm in computer science at the university, just to clarify, so I feel justified in saying I'm more intelligent than most second grade teachers)
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, so your comment is only valid on a very limited sense and ironically without those morons and their support throughout your education you would not have your degree.
@TheMonkeyGod, well his teacher is legitimately stupid. She wrote down some instructions for some of his English homework, and she slaughtered the English language.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, so it's valid in this instance. And considering she has a degree, she can't be completely stupid. Comparatively stupid, yes. But we all are...
@TheMonkeyGod, actually elementary education is considered the easiest degree to achieve at most of the Universities I've been to... Which needs to change... Badly... Making excuses for those who support us is one thing, but allowing a poor system to continue is another.
@IAmFlame, come to Australia, harder to get it here. General arts is the easiest. Qualifies you to serve fries with that order.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, Who is Ted Mosby?
@ericb, watch"How I met your Mother"
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, I don't think it's fair to belittle teachers like that. Sure, that teacher might have been stupid, but most are not. Teaching requires at least a Bachelor's degree and many school districts like to see advanced degrees as well. Elementary teachers aren't highly studied in a specific subject like middle school and secondary teachers, but teaching still requires a lot of knowledge and effort. Teaching about the American Revolution? Not only do you have to know way more about it than you'll actually teach, you need to know how to plan the instruction so that it's effective for all students while keeping in mind classroom management issues. Now add 3+ other units on top of that plus caring for students socioemotional needs and keeping behavior in check, plus hundreds of unpaid hours over the course of the school year? Some teachers are stupid, but cases of stupidity (like the photo) are probably actually cases of being overworked most times. Being in CS doesn't make
@Ruupasya, you any more or less intelligent than anyone else who has been through college.
@Ruupasya, haha I posted that to start a war, but I didn't intend people to get this mad at me 😂
@Ruupasya, I disagree. I've had plenty of instructors that knew less about subjects than the students... they simply followed the class plan and read the book verbatim as "teaching". I'm not saying this is super common, but it does happen often enough to be an issue.
@TheMonkeyGod, it's the same in Canada. It's fairly difficult to become a teacher here.
@I Are Lebo, and rightly so
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, well, I just got my master's degree in elementary education, so yeah. I am sure I will meet stupid teachers, but I have not yet. Teachers i have disagreed with or I did not like, sure, but no stupid ones. They're out there, but I do not think they're as common as you think, and I do not think it's fair to act superior to an entire profession.
@dreka, well I was talking about the kinds of teachers that principals are supposed to hire. Unfortunately, tenure and nepotism are big issues in the teaching profession. Actually I just had a job interview at a school and found out that they have a very scripted curriculum for teachers to follow and then I definitely did not want that job.
Each standard has information that students are required to know as well as optional extension information. Elementary teachers cannot be experts in every subject, but if they're doing their jobs, they do know more then they'll teach. But if you get a kid who's obsessed with the Civil War or something, yeah, the kid might know more, because elementary teachers need to have a breadth of knowledge rather than a depth. Middle and secondary teachers are the opposite.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, I promise you, you are 100% not better than anyone else
@KeKesUHaulFacility , I stated earlier I only posted that to start a war 😂
@TheMonkeyGod, little late, but my dad is a teacher here. Primary.
@I Are Lebo, my father is a pedo here :( wanna swap?
@TheMonkeyGod, no thanks. I'm good
@I Are Lebo, please?
@I Are Lebo, I thought Canadians were nice people....
@TheMonkeyGod, nice, eh? I don't know about that, but we ain't stupid, now are we, that's fer sure.
The fact that it's in legitimate hand writing not cursive?
@killzone, or the fact that it's spelt wrong. Either way is still really neat writing
@train on the water, yea aha, I knew at least one person was gonna point out the 2 "t's"
@killzone, cursive isn't developmentally appropriate to be taught until third grade
@Ruupasya, it's no longer taught in my school district.
I use it so people can't copy my notes.
@Ruupasya, where I am from, I was taught from grade 1-5 then we had a choice if we wanted to use it or not
@killzone, when i was a kid, it was taught in third grade and after that we had a choice. Where I live now, as far as I know it's only a standard in third grade and it's a very insignificant standard at that. I overlooked it the first several times I read the standards cause it's just kind of tacked on.
@Ruupasya, ok I see, yea could be the different places or times, as I'm grade 10 now and you're probably older
