"I'm tired of watching all of these movies and television shows that portray a teacher as some kind of saint," the teacher said.
And parents should be tired of this too, since, no matter how well intentioned they are, teachers are active unwitting participants in the deliberate dumbing down and indoctrination of school children.
A major architect of standardized testing, H.H. Goddard, said in his book Human Efficiency (1920) that government schooling was about "the perfect organization of the hive." He said standardized testing was a way to make lower classes recognize their own inferiority. Like wearing a dunce cap, it would discourage them from breeding and having ambition. Goddard was head of the Psychology Department at Princeton, so imagine the effect he had on the minds of the doctoral candidates he coached, and there were hundreds.

John Taylor Gatto climaxed his teaching career as New York State Teacher of the Year after being named New York City Teacher of the Year on three occasions. He quit teaching in 1991 while still New York State Teacher of the Year.
RE: Chinks in the armor... "and much of its box office bankroll is coming from China" I thought BW was a liberal, non-racist publication? ouch
I think we should retire the phrase "chink in the armor".
The bottom line is that a person has rights under the First Amendment to make their own choices no matter what anyone else thinks. Therefore no one else should have any say and should accept what the person has done, especially since they cannot undo what the person has chosen to do. My opinion nor any other opinion matters.
Reminds me why I don't live in Boise anymore. Always so critical and nitpicky of everyone and everything.
He was at his best in 'Milk.'
He's 36....not 37.
He should just teach and not be creepy he seems smart enough.
Is he teaching maths?!
James Franco is exactly like a male prostitute, did you see that photo he posted on his instagram last month? It's really hard to believe James Franco has any education at all. USC and UCLA let James Franco teach acting there coz the university want to promote film school. James Franco didn't finish any education to teach at the college. James Franco have no dignity at all. Look at that movie homefront, look how dignity-LESS James Franco is. Yuck!
Why is X-Men DOFP put in the discount theater section? This movie looks excellent, most of the early reviews have been extremely positive, with this potentially being the best film in the franchise. This is more of a "must-see" than most of the films in the "must-see" section (though there are several of those that I'm interested in checking out).
What's funny about this list is that the top 10 are the best suited for Blu-Ray rental at home. They aren't cinematic pieces that play to the big screen format. Heck, A million Ways to Die in the West looks like it was shot in an old back lot at MGM with a video camera. I'm not saying these movies aren't good. I am just of the opinion that to pay $10+ on a movie these days requires something of a rather grand scale. Give me something to look at. And most of those movies play fine at the discount theaters.
Better yet, wait till November when the actual good movies start to come out for pre-oscar buzz. Best of all, at home you can make everyone turn their cell phones off.
I like to pronounce it - (goot) like German, and (zee yah) with a Spanish flair!
Godzilla goes "GRRRR".
The "Book of Jubilees" and "Enoch" were rejected from the Biblical canon and NEITHER one of them mentioned the flood. In other words, they are FICTIONAL...So if the supposed basis is based on these, it's ridiculous. Let's get factual.
Cable One has no problem collecting their full service fee, which is much higher than other TV viewing services, then they want to provide less value to their customers for the same price. These new channels are "CRAP" and they know it. I can no longer view any of the shows I normally watch, so several of my relatives and friends in the neighborhood are searching for a better service. We are through with substandard service after years of being customers with Cable One. Look for a cancellation of service in the College Park area of Gulfport, MS. What's next? You suck for not getting your customer's feedback and just turning off the channels we paid for in the middle of the month. Turner, Viacom and whose next?
Kudos to Cable One for fighting this battle. It is outrageous for the network to be loosing viewership and demand such price increases, which would be passed on the customer anyway. Companies like Viacom and Turner are opposing federal legislation to require a-la-carte programming options and pricing, because they want us to pay for hundreds of channels of crap, just so we can watch the 12 out of 300 channels that are actually good.
I THINK THAT THIS IS BULLSHIT... LAST YEAR WE LOST TURNER CHANNELS. NOW THIS,,,, I AM SO SICK OF CABLE ONE... HAVE WE HAVE HAD NO COMPASATION....
