Several weeks ago I went home to visit my parents for a wedding — my cousin was getting married. Despite the lingering thoughts about how the couple would probably get divorced, and about how marriage is a horrible deal for a manI still genuinely hoped that it would work out for them.
As the procession ended, my family and I funneled out through the narrow front doors of the church, and I was surprised to see my Kindergarten teacher standing there.
She seemed like one of the few teachers who actually got into teaching for the sake of helping young children grow into responsible young adults. Despite how many might feel about running into an old teacher, I was actually glad — I remembered many of the lessons that she had taught me, and how they were applicable to real life.
After chatting with her for a while, I found out that she was still a Kindergarten teacher. Immediately, her normally joyful, rosy-cheeked expression transformed into a grimace. I told her that more people needed to know the truth, and that I was a blogger who could give it to them.
After a long discussion about the current state of the American educational system, I went home and sifted through my recordings.
I have compiled here a list of the three core points which Mrs. From a young age, any time that a boy tries to express his masculinity, he is viciously reprimanded and made to feel guilty about his natural biological tendencies. Meanwhile, little girls are eagerly rewarded for every single thing that they do, thus inflating their already bloated egos.
I used to let the boys play with toy swords and shields, too. They would make up their own games and fight with each other — I thought it was good for them. It taught them to have courage, it exercised their creativity, it showed them the value of teamwork, and it gave them an outlet.
As most of us are aware, this is how it all started. At first, the liberals pressured schools to stop letting boys rough play, under the guise that it was dangerous and violent. The public ate it up. The other day one of my boys got a detention, because he said he wanted to be a firefighter when he grew up.
The VP [vice principal] was attending a special little presentation that our classroom had put on; each of the kids drew a picture of what they wanted to be when they grew up, and said a few words about why they chose that profession.
He said that he wanted to be a man like his daddy, and that being a firefighter would make him a stronger, braver man. Brace yourself for the shit storm, kid. The kid just started to cry; he was so confused. This level of hyper-speech control really struck a chord with me—I felt bad for the kid, because I could relate.
I was playing with a basketball during recess. The class bully came up, took it from me, kicked it as far as he could, and ran. I yelled after him: They told me that I had threatened to kill another student, and that they took matters like this very seriously.
They let me off with a warning, but told me that if I ever said anything like that again, I would probably be expelled. Egalitarianism has infected our schools George Orwell was startlingly accurate Egalitarianism, as defined by the pussified, Orwellian newspeak-promoting Merriam Webster, means: I taught them how to hold a pencil, and the proper way to write letters and numbers with it.
I taught the boys to be gentle with the girls, because they were stronger, and it was their responsibility to protect them.
The other day, I got in trouble for teaching a young boy to color in the lines; for teaching him to color in the lines! A decade ago I got in trouble for teaching a young boy how to use a folder. He had been stuffing worksheets into his backpack, leaving them all crumpled up and disorganized, so I bought him a little two pocket Spiderman folder and showed him how to use it.
The next day, his parents chewed me out. I told them that he was disorganized and lost everything. Clark was astonished at their grossly offensive idiocy and irresponsible parenting: They were using his ADHD as an excuse to let him stay disorganized and cluttered.
Still think that egalitarianism is a good thing? Perhaps the clearest thing which I recall, is being bullied by a kid named Robbie. Every day, for no apparent reason, he would push me down onto the ground.Benefits of Cursive Handwriting.
