    Interesting story out of NC - I suspect I'd probably be hacked off it it was my kid.

    Seems like a fair punishment. I think putting a big Fon a paper should be sufficient.

    Saw that story last week.

    Lucky he didn't get fired.

    But maybe he'd be better off if he did get canned, because he is clearly ill equipped to be teaching anything to anyone.

    A kid in my Geometry class my freshman year of high school reversed a graph and the teacher wrote DYSLEXIC? across the front of it. Teacher was suspended for a week and then fired at the end of the school year.

    He actually said that it was his way of relating to students? The administration should fire him and explain that it is their way of dealing with assholes who don't belong in education.

    Assholes who don't belong in education tend to be administrators.

    This is one of the more oft-told stories among members of my graduating class. We had a math teacher who said, "Now, open your textbooks to Mary's favorite number...69!"

    Mary was a cute girl in the class.

    He was voted teacher of the year in the school two years later.

    As a postscript to the story, my friend, who is now a teacher himself, was telling this story to his fellow teachers one day in their lounge. Everyone was of course horrified. A few minutes later, my buddy's at the urinal when a science teacher in the class goes to the next one. The science teacher asks, "Mike, about your story. All the kids in my class laugh, too, when I say the number 69. What's so funny about that? What is 69?"

    He was being perfectly honest; he was like a weird shut-in. So my friend had to explain the basics of 69 to a 50-year-old colleague.

    While they were in the can. Which makes it even creepier.

    I'm not sure which one of those is more disturbing.
