I suppose these amateur astronomers will be our future teachers. Duh! It was cloudy last night.

yeah, teachers are so stupid, i don't know why we even have an education system in this country, everybody would be doing so much better if there were no teachers or schools, especially in bad neighborhoods were the schools are keeping parents from educating their kids the right way

"Duh" is most likely a vocalization on your part and not much of a commentary on future educators.

Did you ever think that it might be a little difficult to view the sun at night?

No wonder our kids cannot pass simple testing. Teachers are vastly overpaid.

Scott Walker's victory last night shows the support for slashing the number of teachers and cutting teacher pay! This gets rid of the teachers motivated to stay only for the high pay, and trims down to the very few teachers actually dedicated. Even they have no right to interfere with proper parenting, as you point out!

Perhaps a better commentary on future educators would be the fact that--in an analysis of college entry exams--those intending to major in education score some of the lowest SAT scores of any major. Or--in contrast to what the investment houses disclaim--"past performance is an indicator of future results."

The above posts are brought to you by the enlightened souls of the glorious south where learning is a notion not yet understood.

Well for once the forecast was right.

I still don't get the excitement. Is it because the little dot getting in the way of sun only occurs once in a blue moon?
