That Perfect Example Of The Department Of Education At Its Finest!

A few weeks ago, as a part of my Carter retrospective, I wrote about the creation of the Department of Education. Part of my assertion was the complete failure that this Department has turned out to be. Our national ranking for our students on the world stage has dropped steadily and substantially since this cabinet level bureaucracy was created. The costs per student spent in terms of real dollars have increased as the quality of the product supplied has declined. Our top spending school districts in this country are, not by any accidental coincidence, also our worst. How bad has the situation in our public schools gotten? Have a listen to the youtube clip below. Bear in mind, this teacher is the source for learning for a class that is covering Social Studies, a subject which should include our Constitution and the First Amendment among other topics.

There has been much hand wringing over the fact that this is a shameful example of indoctrination being substituted for actual learning, and those complaints are spot on. I don't wish to diminish that argument, although I feel that it is somewhat secondary, and if not secondary, then at least it shares importance with something else of equal concern. This teacher is incompetent. When I say incompetent, what I mean is that she is a complete disaster, and should have in no way, shape, or form, been permitted to be introduced to a room full of anyone learning anything, as a teacher. The parents of this school district should be outraged that their tax dollars, which they are undoubtedly asked during every single election through a new bond issue to increase, are used to pay this woman a salary to instruct their children on anything more basic that how to tie their shoes. If it were my child in this school, I would be angry if she were allowed to be monitoring the lunch room.

Take a good listen to the taped recording above if you can stand it again. This woman is stupid, and that does not begin to cover the situation. Her grasp on the English language can at best be described as tenuous. She somehow feels as though her teaching certificate has given her authority to affect an arrest for people who, "disrespect," the President. The entire concept of our political leaders being common folk who temporarily serve as our representatives seems so thoroughly lost, that she draws a clear distinction between our two contenders for this year's election. Not only in terms of the job that they currently hold, but in terms as to what we mere citizens are allowed to even think about them. Her student has to remind her, the supposed expert on the very subject discussed, that our Constitution contains something called the First Amendment, which follows here.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging
the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right
of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the
Government for a redress of grievances.

Listening to this teacher, I couldn't help but wonder, how did she escape her own school experience without being labeled as a special education student herself. As it is, I would be willing to bet that she not only has somehow managed to obtain the proper teaching credentials necessary to be certified a teacher in her state, but that she managed to be conferred with a Masters Degree. Which begs the question, where on Earth did she attend college, and why on Earth are there no standards there? That she seems to feel that teaching Social Studies is all about mass indoctrination of our youth to the Marxist point of view, fear not. She seems, at least from the complete lack of control of her class room that she is no more competent at that than she is with her grasp of the English language or her grasp of her subject matter.

How long has this woman been teaching? What is the NEA's role or her Union's role in keeping her in that position? How many other incompetent teachers are being forced upon the good people of North Carolina? This is the true legacy of the Department of Education. The sad fact is that this situation is not an isolated case of some illiterate moron slipping through the cracks to accidentally appear in front of a class room full of eager sponges ready to absorb the poison that springs forth from her Marxist view of the world. This woman is the rule and not the exception. Her suspension was with pay, and will undoubtedly be forgotten when the next school year begins.

Get ready also for new rules banning any type of recording devices at all public schools when classes reconvene in September. It's not that they are afraid that you'll find out that there is massive indoctrination going on. They are afraid that you'll figure out the quality of education your unionized public employees provide for the taxes you pay, and then vote to defeat every single bond issue the school boards ever ask for in the future.

As an afterthought, here is the response from the school board.

The Rowan-Salisbury School System expects all students and employees to be respectful in the school environment and for all teachers to maintain their professionalism in the classroom. This incident should serve as an education for all teachers to stop and reflect on their interaction with students. Due to personnel and student confidentiality, we cannot discuss the matter publicly.

Nothing about the fact that the teacher has not a single clue as to the material being taught, nor the language she is expected to teach that material in.

I have to tell you a story from my sister.  My sister is a teacher at a medical school, does medical research for her school, and got a great deal of Grants for the Medical School at the University of California, Los Angeles.  She had one of her students complain about her grading of him.  He went over her head and went to the Dean of her Department.  She was called into his Office, sitting there waiting was the students father, a benefactor to the College and a graduate of the Medical School; he donates millions to the School each year.


She was asked to explain her grading of his test scores.  She explained that the test she uses is from the Department and she grades them based on the Departments answers sheets.  If his father was upset that she was “picking” on him and the answers he gave, he should take it up with the Dean.  What she said next rather woke the Dean and his wealthy father.


We are here creating the next generation of doctors, shouldn’t they be able to answer some of the easiest question and understand the core curriculum of general biology and biomedicine.  Your son could not answer most of the questions on the test and uses “your” position as a school donor to try to get around his test scores.  I’m sorry but I will not pass a student who cannot answer the easiest questions on a test, whom someday will or could become a doctor.  Would you go to him to be your primary doctor and get your medical care from him?  I sure wouldn’t.  She went over the test with them and his responses or lack of response.  They all ended up thinking the same thing, which he shouldn’t be a doctor (the student planned to follow in his father’s field plastic surgery).  The student only wanted the same amount of money his father made, not the knowledge of science, medicine or helping people who really needed help.


A few weeks later, he dropped out of the medical school and she had heard he changed his major to law.  Another useless lawyer in the wings.  Great!  She left UCLA School of Medicine and moved to another state but still doing teaching and research for another School of Medicine.

In graduate School at Texas A&M. M.S. in Counseling:
During the very first test during the very first Semester, I noticed that all of the blacks were sitting at the back of the room with their books open during a test asking each other "what page was that answer on?"  They didn't care we could hear them.  They "were allowed to openly cheat".
Later in another class, we were in an auditorium type class room.  For a "getting to know you game, everyone was to stand up and say their name.  Then each student was to try to recall each person's name by memory+facial recognition.
Well, it WAS such a large auditorium, I couldn't see "over the heads" to the back table in the corner of the room.  I did recall everyone's name.  Suddenly, I heard someone in the back of the room yelling, "You racist! You didn't even remember our names!!!!!"  
I was shocked as I said, "I couldn't see you to remember your name to associate it with you face -- you're too far back in the room."
Then, of course, there was Advanced Psychology.  AGAIN, they had their books out in plain sight; and no one said a word.
And, by the way?  The Teachers who were studying to get their Masters in School Counseling?  During that same test, they "were also allowed to open their books to get the answers."
The ONLY people who weren't allowed to cheat were White and getting a M.S. in either Psychology or Counseling.

Okaaay.... this is just ONE of many experiences I had with black students who were getting their B.S. and M.S. Degrees.

Undergraduate School @ U.T.SW Medical School in Dallas:   On the last test, there was a man sitting in front of me (studying to be a doctor ). He had to take all of the classes to get into medical school.  He had been a teacher in the past and was just a little over-aged to be starting all over again! BUT...that wasn't my issue with him.

When I was working on my B.S. In Community Counseling at U.T. SW Medical/Dallas, we had two term papers and only two tests.  On the final test the first page was multiple choice.  It was only worth 30 points.
The 2nd page was a choice of 3 discussion questions.  As I got up from my desk, the black man in front of me had finished his test and let me pass by his desk first...I saw the 2nd page of his test worth "70" points.  IT WAS BLANK.  IN OTHER WORDS, HE FAILED THE TEST.

Eileen, do you remember Bush's phrase "The Trickle Down Effect"?  Bush was referring to the economy; but with this man?  The racism, hatred and anyone's personal opinion BECOMES racism if it is about him.

"Dis-repect"?  She has NO place in a classroom.

Comment by Eileen Guthrie on May 24, 2012 at 1:03pm

Well, it's pretty clear she's black (based on the tone of her voice and Ebonics inflections) and that's the only reason she supports president Obama, as do most blacks (lower case on purpose, and yes... I'm disrespecting her President because God knows he's not my President).  I have to wonder if she respected President Bush?  My guess, probably not.

I've been doing a great deal of research on him for another website and the stuff I've found shows just how corrupt, hateful, disrespecting the People of this Nation, deceitful, his Gangster Government agenda.  So far, I've counted 310 scandals in his administration, which tops even Clinton over 8 years and I think we will agree that Clinton was pretty deceitful and dishonest President.  Almost every day they're is another scandal.  I cannot put into words, to explain what is going on in this White House.  I WANT TO SCREAM!!!

One of the things I found, that is minimal compared to his crimes against the People.  He wears make up to darken his skin to appear more black on camera.  Next time look to see the shifting of his skin color.  When I read that I laughed (and the guy showed proof in photos of Obama), but then I started to pay attention and saw that it was true.  It started with his campaign and continues till today. He's grabbing the black vote and starting to make everything racial.  I'm sick of this guy and want to see him go to prison and be a neighbor to Rod Blagojevich.  Crimes against the People, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and for lying about everything. Kick him to the curb folks.

obama is so corrupt he has teachers,acorn and the black panthers cheating and lying for him... Wake up America,obama is corrupt period.

There are a couple of separate ideas here: one points out the need for the abolition of the Department of Education.  There is a State Department of Education if every state.  There is no need for one at the national level, nor has the one that exists done one thing to enhance education among the fifty states.  Which of your Republican congressional delegates has initiated a bill to terminate that agency?

The other idea is the need at local and state levels for regular competence evaluations of teachers.  This recording alone is concrete evidence that the woman in question should be terminated in that job.  As a requirement for any public sector teaching position, an aspirant should be required to pass an English exam.  Looming larger here, however, is the NEA.  How can we prevail against this union?  Don't we first need public sector unions to be abolished?  We should be that "union" and we should determine, in our sole judgement what they will be paid and under what terms their employment will occur.   Which of your Republican legislators has introduced legislation to effect the abolition of public sector unions?

we're starting a campaign to record teachers in the classroom. You all need to start one in your area.
