The most critical part, I think.

I prefer them happy, though this not always possible.

I generally position mine after the Middle, but that's just my personal preference.

My favorite movie review of all time (I can't
remember the movie or the reviewer, if
that says anything) went something like
this:

"The problem with this movie was the
ending… it was too close to the
beginning."

That would have been a lot funnier if I
hadn't screwed up the joke. It should have
read:

"The problem with this movie was the
ending… it was too far from the
beginning."

I guess my stand-up career was over
before I could even stand up.

My favorite movie review was from my wife at the end of 2001 the other night:

"That made me tired and I don't get it".

I thought it was a happy ending myself!

Nah, being a part of the "forgotten 1/3" (y'all in the education field know what I'm talking about) I find the middle a far more critical part...

K.I.

Keith:

Back in '96, I finally decided to leave public teaching for good. I was sick and tired of administrators whose salary was about $1500 per I.Q. point calling the shots. Once I made this decision, I stopped censoring myself.

At a faculty meeting, the teachers were discussing the pros and cons of heterogeneous grouping. (Mainly the cons, natch.) After listening to the teachers' gripes for a while, the assistant principal, a power-suit-wearing, buzz-word-dropping, quote-all-the-latest-education-experts sort, said, "Well, at the administrator's meeting last night, Asst. Superintendent So-and-so said, 'At high tide, all the ships in the harbor rise.'"

I raised my hand and said, "But their anchor chains aren't all the same length!"

This got me a "See me, ASAP" memo from the principal, which in turn led to another in a long line of meetings which began with my saying, "I can explain..."

I left in 1998. Now I test software and engrave music with Finale.

Only 1500/IQ point? So they must've been part of my district... ;-)

I did the same thing.

We were moving that way as well. My colleagues and I didn't care for it one bit.

LOL! We had one of those too. The superintendent never left his office except for board meetings where he got to grandstand on local television. So this guy thought he was in charge. I to this day can't believe that the state gave him his teaching certificate.

I thought my other colleague in the choral music department and I were the only ones that got those...

;-)

Keith:

Boy, it sounds like you and I are twins separated at birth.

;-)

Seriously, isn't amazing how anyone who spent time in the trenches of education can share these stories of the nonsense that we all had to put up with?

It's an amazing double standard; people get mad because teachers don't teach any more—except to teach things like self-esteem and revisionist history—but when teachers do try to teach and hold their students accountable, they get the angry phone calls from parents who aren't satisfied with their childrens' grades.

I miss the actual teaching (middle school chorus for 12 years) and I really did enjoy the students for the most part, but I sure don't miss the BS...

Cheers.
