Common sense

I’m putting the finishing touches on my grades now!  Tomorrow is the last contracted day of the 2003-04 school year, and I’m bringing things to a dignified close.  Dignified.

Then I read this story.  I am speechless.  I find it embarassing that people in my profession would show school children a beheading (and even more confounding, one teacher showed it during a pizza party).  This kind of act shows no regard for young minds and demonstrates a complete lack of mature judgement on the teachers’ part.

A message to any educators who decide to criticize heros and positive role models and instead emblazen graphic images of the very worst atrocities humanity is capable of into children’s minds.  Think about what you are doing!  Use your common sense!

You are dismissed.
