In the "old days" we used to use lancets (sterile of course) and actually learn how to type our own blood in biology class. Of course that was "pre-AIDS" and helicopter parent days. "In loco parentis" made the case that when in school, the school stood in place of the parent.
Hopefully, we can agree, that that's when teachers accepted a parent's responsibility - rather than look down on our precious kids like a mere paycheck, and treat them like they're nothing more than a pain in the proverbial asss.

Believe it or not, but after 41 years in the profession, there are Ohio schools that treat their kids well and prepare them very well for their futures. I will admit though, that there are some teachers, who are more driven by "self" or union, than by doing what is best for the student and the system.
