Those damned teachers

What's Mallard raving about today?


Way to fight the power Mallard. Taking on fat cat, overpaid, pampered teachers! People who contribute nothing to society and just leach off the hard work of others.

Yep, these people are deserving of our utter contempt and scorn.

I assume nurses are next. Then firefighters. And the police. Eventually, no doubt, Mallard will get around to calling out our soldiers who think the Nanny State should be responsible for their medical care and education.

As a teacher who is known to employ small groups, let me just say that Tinsley can fucking bite me. It's painfully obvious that he knows nothing and cares less about pedagogic theory, and as someone who DOES know and care about this stuff, his smug small-mindedness here appears even more moronic than usual.

It just enrages Tinny that money that he could've spent on gasoline and booze goes to paying strangers to spread lies like math, history and science to other people's children, who he couldn't care less about. The injustice!

Tinsley is all about the boring lecture. I'm sure that he feels that if he can manage to fit a boring lecture into a daily cartoon every day, teachers have no excuse with their full hour of indoctrination time.

Do teachers really read the books at the same time as their students? Wouldn't the teacher have finished reading the book before assigning it?

Since this is Mallard Fillmore's alternate reality, the book is probably about lesbians.

That's right teachers don't even lecture anymore. They prefer kids come up with their own ideas on the book, their own feelings. They actually want us to develop our skills of interpretation and understanding rather than telling us what to believe. Fucking liberal scum.

And I flash back yet again to the whole "universities are unfair to conservatives" thing.

See, now the teachers are letting kids come up with their own ideas and discuss it with their peers. And it's still wrong.

So apparently the best schools aren't ones that are open to difference views as he previously maintained, it's all of them completely biased to his preferance.

It's fine to rant, but at least try to be consistent and honest first.

from middle school to college, my experiences in small groups and peer review of papers were very positive. I remember one religious studies class about american religions and symbolism that split up into groups of 3-4 practically every day. it was really interesting and i'm very appreciative of that teacher. i never once thought he was just some lazy shmuck that was too busy to teach. just my $.02

i guess teachers can't do anything right according to Tinsley. especially those snooty ones with glasses and that 'liberal' looking haircut he always draws.

I wonder what Tinsley would think about Evergreen State College, where I went to school. Not only is ESC a librul hotbed, but the group discussion format makes up about 75% of the classtime.

That's can be quite fun, letting students work together, laugh their asses off (who me?), and then present something in front of the class, or tell the teacher what they did or whatever.

Mallard's an ass.

I'm taking 3 Honors classes this semester - we've been promised small, discussion-based classes.

The humanity!

Watch out for those books about lesbians, kaitlyn! Lesbians!!

Kaitlyn said...

Lesbians? Oh my heavens.

If I see any gay literature or people or student organizations, I shall sue as soon as possible after dropping out.

I can't get an education while I'm morally outraged!
