When I saw this:
By refusing to administer a district-mandated test to their students, teachers at a Seattle high school have touched off a movement that’s picking up steam by the day.
The Chicago Teachers Union on Monday became the latest to jump on board and express support for the Seattle boycott, announcing a new campaign against “high-stakes standardized testing.”
My blood boiled. With the already failed state of our school system, now these idiots who call themselves “educators” think it’s a good idea to end the only means we have of knowing whether or not they are doing their jobs?
This is “liberal logic” at its finest. When you are trying to demand more money but you know you are incompetent and deserve to be fired instead, what do you do? Simple: you stop testing any measure of your productivity or efficiency. In this case, teachers refuse to test students. Hey, if you don’t test Johnny and Suzy, then no one knows Johnny and Suzy can’t read or add, so you must be the world’s best teacher, right? I mean, hey, no test, no way to prove you are an incompetent parasite that needs to be fired. And that is all this is about — that, and the culmination of the same BS Dewey was pushing in the first half of last century.
I have a better idea. Since these teachers refused to do their job and administer a mandated test, just fire them. There are plenty of people looking for work who would be happy to have their over-paid job. There’s no need for tax payers to keep paying this bunch of insubordinate parasites.
Here, this is what our educators want to turn us all into: the geniuses in Idiocracies futuristic the White House cabinet:
