Also about year and students+21The lady teacher who got 5 years in prison for having a group sex encounter with 5 of her 18 year old students who consented to the sex may have been used as an example and punished too harshly, amirite?
Also about year and repeat+838Our education system is less about learning than it is about superficially showing that we've learned something. Standardized tests are proof of this. You get shoved a whole textbook of factoids,and then you regurgitate it all in a three hour test at the end of the year. Rarely are we taught the significance and purpose of what we learn; we learn just to show that we've learned. Our educational system goes for the cheap-shot quicky: here's a fact. Memorize it. Repeat it. This is education. amirite?
Also about students+352It seems students deal paper and writing utensils like prisoners deal cigarettes and drugs. But students usually won't pay you back. amirite?
Also about News & Current Events+55Things just feel different after 2011-2012, amirite?
Also about year and students+187Students who save up all of their assignments until the end of the year: It's kind of hard to throw away all of the assignments that you saved through the course of the year because you put so much effort and hard work into them, yet they are thrown away like they have absolutely no worth, amirite?
Also about year and students+4We always hear about a need for new taxes to help our schools. I'm not buying it. One of the big pushes for legalization of marijuana here in Colorado was that the money would be used for education. Last year, Colorado collected over 260 million in marijuana taxes. Not one penny went to teachers or students. Now they want to increase property taxes and other taxes, to support our schools, once again. Where the hell is the money going and why aren't corrupt politicians being held accountable?
Also about year+324Perspective is important in judging time. For example an eight year old kid is really young but an eight year prison sentence is really fucking long, amirite?
Also about students+212If teachers can give students due dates for turning in assignments, students should be allowed to give due dates for when they have to grade and return the assignment. amirite?
Also about News & Current Events+73Stopping time is probably the most loophole filled wish since it has to be pre-established that you don't get stopped as well, other wise all existence pretty much ceases since there is no one to start time up again, amirite?
