Touchy educators and the power of DOS

Star Telegram | 01/06/2004 | Hey! Where's the problem?

I also found the quoted e-mail to be appalling writing style from an educator, who of all things should also know that the world of public education is surreal, not 'real world'. Everything about the education system, for good or bad, is an artificial construct, practically.

I guess they'll be writing a policy, too, so that the next time no one can cry foul for overly harsh policies.

Mind you, this is the same state where last month a teacher was telling first graders that there was no Santa, Easter Bunny, or Tooth Fairy.

Pooh on them. Are kids allowed to be kids anymore? Personally, I'm just happy if they avoid doing things that are malicious, can get themselves or others killed/arrested/pregnant/have-their-lives-changed-permanently; otherwise let them have a little fun and express themselves.
