Those damned Oner-Role Students

What's Mallard raving about today?

Schools

Mallard has the demented temerity to continue to cast aspersions on the education system. I suppose his recent spate of comics is indictment enough of whatever system spit him out.

I'll try to use small words and talk slowly, Mallard.

The people who would produce the bumper stickers would be the teachers and school administrators, most of whom are members of your generation and went through the same school systems you did.

And they are not as illiterate as whatever duck seems to think Honor Roll is a hyphenate, spelled correctly or not.

Wow, he's really milking this bull with both hands, isn't he?

Maybe he'll get tired of attacking grade-school teachers, and get around to knocking universities, noting how Yale and Harvard can still turn out complete morons like President Hyuk-Hyuk.

Oh, wait.

Also noted: it's interesting that Michael Moore is vilified for suggesting that America needs improvement in health care, yet Tinsley probably expects a medal for mewling that American public education sucks.

Where is that kid Rush? Didn't this whole anti-public-education diatribe start with him? I guess Mallard's just biding his time, letting the drama build, before capping this whole brilliant series with Rush's triumphant return.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune replaced this with a strip from 2003. In Minneapolis, North High School is located in the poor, African-American ghetto, and is often attacked by know-nothing right wingers for low test scores and graduation rates. Probably wouldn't go over too well here.

Tinsley is a strange egg. If he wants to take on kids today and their atrocious spelling, he could point out the way they write in text message speak. But that would involve some effort.

12xuser, if the kids and faculty at North High School in Minneapolis would get upset, can you imagine how the kids and faculty at Columbus North High School in Tinsley's hometown of Columbus, Indiana feel?

Just checking the info on the school at http://mustang.doe.state.in.us/SEARCH/snapshot.cfm?schl=0397.
Tinny certainly can't blame anything on them "uppity minorities." (insert 8-dot ellipsis here)

Honestly, this is getting annoying now.

Did they not spell the original bumper stickers right? Do our school systems really suck that badly? (hint: we are STILL among the highest in literacy rates, even with our proverty stricken schools and illegal immigrants)

And if the status quo was school systems today produce dumber kids than 30 years ago, why would the networks even conceive of a program about adults competing against fifth graders?

Hey, I used to live in Minneapolis! I worked as a paraprofessional at Jenny Lind, so I know my struggling North Minneapolis schools.


The way today's strip is colored makes it look as if someone scribbled out "Honor Role Student" and then wrote "Oner role stoodint" on top. Was that his intention?
