If true, the teacher should be fired as well. No excuse for that. If you can't handle being in a class and acting appropriately with kids, you shouldn't be in there. Doesn't really matter what the kid does.

He should shoot the teacher's laptop next time...

My wife teaches 1st grade in the town right next to cherry hill.

...hopefully this doesn't start a trend of parents planting bugs on their kids. It could lead to some really out-of-context accusations.

that's the other bad part about this... a lot of stuff can be taken out of context. now obviously calling a kid a bastard, talking about alcohol and how wine is going to be in charge for the day, and screaming at a kid to shut is mouth is something that should NEVER be said in a classroom. But looking back, i'm sure i said things while teaching that could easily be taken out of context.

Yeah, as I was listening to it I was wondering about context and the validity of the audio. On face value, this seems legit, but I can see lots of future problems if other parents decide to do this.

Here's an actual story and questions from an 8th grade NY state test:


The Hare and the Pineapple

by Daniel Pinkwater

In olden times, the animals of the forest could speak English just like you and me. One day, a pineapple challenged a hare to a race.

(I forgot to mention, fruits and vegetables were able to speak too.)

A hare is like a rabbit, only skinnier and faster. This particular hare was known to be the fastest animal in the forest.

“You, a pineapple have the nerve to challenge me, a hare, to a race,” the hare asked the pineapple. “This must be some sort of joke.”

“No,” said the pineapple. “I want to race you. Twenty-six miles, and may the best animal win."

"You aren't even an animal!" the hare said. “You're a tropical fruit!"

“Well, you know what I mean,” the pineapple said.


The animals of the forest thought it was very strange that tropical fruit should want to race a very fast animal.

"The pineapple has some trick up its sleeve," a moose said.

Pineapples don't have sleeves, an owl said

"Well, you know what I mean,” the moose said. "If a pineapple challenges a hare to a race, it must be that the pineapple knows some secret trick that will allow it to win.”

“The pineapple probably expects us to root for the hare and then look like fools when it loses,” said a crow. “Then the pineapple will win the race because the hare is overconfident and takes a nap, or gets lost, or something.”

The animals agreed that this made sense. There was no reason a pineapple should challenge a hare unless it had a clever plan of some sort. So the animals, wanting to back a winner, all cheered for the pineapple.

When the race began, the hare sprinted forward and was out of sight in less than a minute. The pineapple just sat there, never moving an inch.

The animals crowded around watching to see how the pineapple was going to cleverly beat the hare. Two hours later when the hare cross the finish line, the pineapple was still sitting still and hadn't moved an inch.

The animals ate the pineapple.

MORAL: Pineapples don't have sleeves


Beginning with paragraph 4, in what order are the events in the story told?

A switching back and forth between places

B In the order in which the events happen

C Switching back and forth between the past and the present

D In the order in which the hare tells the events to another animal


The animals ate the pineapple most likely because they were

A Hungry

B Excited

C Annoyed

D Amused

Which animal spoke the wisest words?

A The hare

B The moose

C The crow

D The owl

Before the race, how did the animals feel toward the pineapple?
A Suspicious

B Kindly

C Sympathetic

D Envious

What would have happened if the animals had decided to cheer for the hare?

A The pineapple would have won the race.

B They would have been mad at the hare for winning.

C The hare would have just sat there and not moved.

D They would have been happy to have cheered for a winner.

When the moose said that the pineapple has some trick up its sleeve, he means that the pineapple

A is wearing a disguise

B wants to show the animals a trick  

C has a plan to fool the animals

D is going to put something out of its sleeve

My favorite is the second question... "The animals ate the pineapple because they were..."
Well, they're animals, so they'd probably eat when they're hungry. However, they're talking animals, so maybe they were just annoyed with the talking pineapple.

The NY Daily News story is great. Also, the which animal is the wisest is unanswerable.

It's just the whole here's 5 grand to send your kid to another school when that's not even near the cost to educate one student. Then the school the student is leaving has to foot the rest of the bill for that kid to go to the new school. It makes zero sense and punishes schools for something they have no control over which is a parent's decision.

Doesn't really have anything to do with unions. Privatizing education doesn't help kids, it helps adults make money.

Good article on the closing of 40 Philly public schools. Actually touches on many of the race issues mentioned in the Trayvon Martin thread.

That's private schools. Not surprised or angered. The parents get what they paid for in that case as Charters have the option of not letting your child go there for various reasons.

Charters use public funds to supposedly educate all. They have a habit of getting rid of problems though, for various reasons.
