    Congrats, Beaver Ridge teachers. You're ridiculous.


    Edited the thread title since it's actually Norcross, north of Atlanta, rather than Atlanta proper.

    I think the "outrage" would be explained a lot more fully with some more background information on the teachers, students and parents.

    It's stupid no matter who does it, but depending on some of those factors, it could be really REALLY stupid.

    Hey, are we ignoring the highly-competitive market of white-slave trade in this day and age? :)

    The letter on the home page of the school appears in English and Spanish: http://www.teacherweb.com/ga/beaverRidgeEs/homepage/sdhp1.aspx

    And here's info on Norcross itself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norcross,_Georgia

    I haven't spent any time up there, so I can't really speak to it.

    Any teacher without the situational awareness to realize this isn't appropriate is a teacher who needs to find another profession.

    Yeah. They should have updated it to the 21st century.

    If Lil' Wayne has 56 crack pipes, how many can he smoke each day if he wants to smoke them all in a week?
    If Paris Hilton puts out 3 sex tapes a day, how much will she have put out at the end of January?

    Looking at that page, I don't think that was produced at the school level. It might have come from the SBO.

    Plus, this is bullshit. There is no way a building admin can review every question created by teachers. Not enough hours in the day.

    Roach said there is a process in place to review questions before they are handed out to students, which didn't happen here.
