A poem showing how Absurd the English Language is.
When the English tongue we speak.
Why is break not rhymed with freak?
Will you tell me why it’s true
We say sew but likewise few?
And the maker of the verse,
Cannot rhyme his horse with worse?
Beard is not the same as heard
Cord is different from word.
Cow is cow but low is low
Shoe is never rhymed with foe.
Think of hose, dose,and lose
And think of goose and yet with choose
Think of comb, tomb and bomb,
Doll and roll or home and some.
Since pay is rhymed with say
Why not paid with said I pray?
Think of blood, food and good.
Mould is not pronounced like could.
Wherefore done, but gone and lone -
Is there any reason known?
To sum up all, it seems to me
Sound and letters don’t agree.
This was written by Lord Cromer, published in the Spectator of August 9th, 1902

Interviewer said “I shall either ask you ten easy questions or one really difficult question. Think well before you make up your mind!” The boy thought for a while and said, “my choice is one really difficult question.” “Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice! Now tell me this.
“What comes first, Day or Night?”
The boy was jolted into reality as his admission depends on the correctness of his answer, but he thought for a while and said, “It’s the DAY sir!”
“How” the interviewer asked.
“Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!”

Since 1994 World Teachers’ Day is celebrated on 5 October.
It is an opportunity for UNESCO and Education International to celebrate
the profession and to promote international standards for the teaching profession.
This day is celebrated in many countries except the United States where it seems the theme should be:
destroy public education and teachers’ moral
Tenure laws were originally passed — New Jersey was first in 1909 — to protect teachers from being fired because of race, sex, political views or cronyism.
To save money, many politicians want to destroy the teacher unions. Although this may also destroy the public school system, many politicians don’t care because their kids go to private schools or public schools in affluent areas.
Most politicians in Washington are millionaires!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Governors in Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Nevada and New Jersey have called for the elimination or dismantling of tenure.
NJ Governor Chris Christie’s plans to gut public education!
Recently elected Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker has proposed a bill that would eliminate almost all collective bargaining rights for most public workers and slash their pay and benefits.
More than 500 teachers and support staff demonstrated at the Detroit Public Schools headquarters to protest the draconian wage and benefits cuts recently imposed by Emergency Financial Manager Roy Roberts.
Roberts is a former General Motors manager who succeeded EFM Robert Bobb, who had been appointed by the then Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm in 2009. Under Bobb’s tenure, scores of schools were shuttered and thousands of schools employees’ jobs eliminated. Roberts, for his part, has wasted no time in exercising his dictatorial powers to impose a new round of attacks on teachers.
.In her gubernatorial campaign, California billionaire Meg Whitman fancies herself a turnaround artist, not unlike CEOs who take on failing companies and put them in the black. In her analysis of why the nation’s most populous state and the world’s 12th largest economy has a chronically dysfunctional government, one villain stands out: public-employee unions.
The war that is being waged on the middle-class by Americans For Prosperity and their lackeys in Republican governor’s mansions has been ongoing for some time, but their latest escalation to include public school teachers as their primary target is beyond comprehension for reasonable Americans. The concerted effort by Republican governors to use teacher unions as scapegoats for budget deficits is a ploy to engender suspicion and hatred for our most valued public servants. Besides directing public anger at school teachers, Republicans are concealing funding mismanagement and corporate tax giveaways that are heavily contributing to state deficits.
After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:
‘Let me see if I’ve got this right.
‘You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning.
‘You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.
‘You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a check book, and apply for a job.
‘You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams
‘You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.
‘You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.
-without support from many parents ( When I was a student, If I got in trouble at school I got in more trouble at home)
-with dwindling budgets and support
-with a great deal of stress
-with a huge workload
-with low status
-after 5 years of College or University Education
‘You want me to do all this and then you tell me. . .
I will not be able to have security (tenure) and have the threat of losing my job if students perform poorly on state, or federal tests (which are a waste of money and time). Or, to save money, a principal can let me go after a few years so that he/she can hire a new teacher at a lower pay scale.
Destroy teachers moral, decrease spending in poor performing schools, increase class sizes … When will the stupidity end?
When the people who make the decisions and have the power put their children in private schools, why should they care about Public Education? The sad answer is they don’t!
Many people believe that they are experts on teaching. After all, we spent so many years in a classroom!
But many are unaware of the new realities in public schools today.
Evaluating teachers by using test scores is all fine and good but you might as well evaluate a retail worker on how happy her customers are about the price of the products.

The teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading.
After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes the teacher asked, “Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude…?”
After a confused silence, Little Johnny volunteered, “I guess you’d be eating alone.”

A teacher had been giving her second-grade students a lesson on science. She had explained about magnets and showed how they would pick up nails and other bits of iron. Now it was question time, and she asked, “My name begins with the letter ‘M’ and I pick up things. What am I?”
Little Johnny, in the back row proudly said, “You’re a mother!”
Little Johnny reported for a final examination that consisted of only true/false questions. He took a seat in the hall, stared at the test for five minutes, removed a coin from his pocket and started tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet. Heads meant true, tails meant false. Little Johnny finished the exam in 30 minutes, while the rest of the class was sweating it out. Suddenly, during the last few minutes, he began desperately throwing the coin and sweating profusely. The moderator, alarmed, approached Little Johnny and asked what was going on. “Well, I finished the exam in half an hour,” he said, “but I thought I ought to recheck my answers.”
