And my life and personal concerns FAR outweigh some lost time and delay at work...

So have we crash-tested one yet? I'd like to see how much protection there actually is, and whether or not it would save kpaul's precious data in a get-off.

I too back stuff on the server, on disk, and I keep paper copies of the most important stuff. If you truely have important things on your computer that in "real world" are so important, I'm sure they get you new equipment post haste. There is still nothing more important on my computer than my welfare. If you put your work ahead of your health I would say that you have messed up priorities. There are exceptions like firefighters and being in the armed services.

Let me guarantee you that my "real world" is every bit as real and cutthroat as yours. I have to walk a much straighter path than you do with much more dire consequences for "alleged" mistakes.

Now let me speak for all educators, not just for myself. Teaching is the second most important profession there is. I have to concede to the medical profession as being the most important. But of course if there weren't teachers, where would doctors come from?

Another thing, why are you always such an a**hole right off the bat in all of your posts? You obviously think you are smarter than everyone else so why even bother conversing with us. We are all so below your IQ, reading, and experience level they we could never possibly get your genius, much less prove you wrong. So why do you even both with us proletariate?

Re: The Education industry gets an F then.
 
Again you don't have a clue what you are talking about. You read something you know a couple of people who sound pretty detatched from actual classroom teaching. It is well known in teaching circles that the vast majority of teachers that leave classroom teaching for administrative jobs could hack it.

These standardized tests are a joke and don't even really test what they are supposedly testing. Not to mention if you are a big believe if standardized testing you should love George W.! Only select kids take these test in the other counties all of our kids take them. Even the drug dealing only comes to school a week out of the year takes these tests.

You don't want foriegn teachers teaching your or anyone elses kid. They would be totally lost. All of these other counties you speak of completely separate school from any social activities. There are school teams and dance and five minute passing periods. The principals and teachers are much better respected for their expertise and don't have to deal with discipline and xbox like we do. Teachers in these counties are revered in their communities so if they call home and tell the parents their kid is being a little bastard the problem gets solved at home. Here they put the kid on medication, make an IEP that states if the kid doesn't hit anyone for a week the school, your tax money, has to buy the kid a bag or spicy cheetos. I didn't make that up, it actually happened at my school last year. That same kid repeatedly sexually harassed fenale students, cussed out teachers, and we had to put with it. It wasn't until he assaulted a teacher and she pressed charges against the kid that he finally got expelled. By the way his mom was the principal of another school, but not in our district. These foreign teachers you want would have the first clue how to deal with a kid like that. You want better tests and education, get better parents and politicians who don't know jack about teaching off teachers' back so we can do our jobs.

Teaching in these other counties consists of a person standing in fornt of a class of attentive children, lecutring to them and assigning homework, which actually gets turned in. How do I know this. Did I read a journal or paper? Nope. I have talked with teachers from these coutries you praise and with fellow teachers here that have gone to observe teaching in these counties and this is what happens.

People in industry have no idea about budgeting kids and time. My curriculum grows but more of my time gets taken away. Like the nine weeks of a 38 week school year for testing. How productive would your office be if you had a fourth of your work time taken away from you. This all the tip of an iceberg you know nothing about no matter what you read.

Consequently, my students get into medical school and tell me how help my explanations of material are to even some of the much more complicated topics they have in college. Of course it is your well-known M.O. to spout off about stuff you know nothing about.

Oh and you work ethic sucks because look how much you post here and at what times of the day you post. Don't give me shyt for a nine month work schedule. I only get paid for those nine months and not a day more. My hours are much longer than yours and I have to spend many more days off actually at work or doing work than you do. I know this by all of your extra curricular activities and B.S.ing on this site. Plus all the political stuff you scavenger off the net. Do you ever actually do work? It has been fun proving you wrong and once again having you show what a schmuck you are, but it is dinner time and then I have to spend the rest of the night grading papers. More of my failed attempts to teach eighth graders wave properties...
