Ever wonder how all those philosophy classes will come in handy?
I have mixed feelings on the teaching of phonics, if you don’t include the ‘names’ of the letters alongside the ‘sounds’, you end up having to speak phonetically all the time. “Go to point buh” instead of “go to point b” for example. (nevervisitsreddit)
I used to work in a “university academy school”, it means that it teaches the children how to pass the university test and be a successful university student, so no arts, no religion, no sports or interactive science. (Tinuviel716)
Abstinence Only. If you are a teacher at a public school in the US – a school that receives federal funds for anything – and a student asks you a sex question, you cannot legally answer it. (If you have written parental permission to teach it in a class, you can make that happen, but that’s not the way you commonly get those questions.) Let me be specific: A 14 year old girl could ask you privately “It’s true that you can’t get pregnant your first time, right?” or “You can’t get pregnant in a hot tub because of the chlorine, right?” or “…if you do it standing up/..if you douche with Pepsi right afterward/…if he pulls out … right?” And the only way you are legally permitted to respond, is that they shouldn’t be having sex. You cannot set them straight, without breaking the law. (laundryandblowjobs)
