Please, Make It Stop

It was bad enough when a Florida site noticed, but it was echoed in Indiana, the Pacific Northwest, and Minnesota.

Yes, a Florida school district fired a substitute teacher for “wizardry” when a parent apparently complained about the teacher doing “magic” in class.

Come on, they didn’t burn him at the stake or stone him.

It’s not like they will be able to pay substitute teachers next year, so it just happened a little earlier. The cuts in K-12 are even worse than what is happening in the university system.

They need keepers for the parents, not teachers for the kids.

Remembering my own school days, I would say anyone brave enough to substitute teach NEEDS some wizardry.

In my county in Florida you make $50/day as a substitute – that less than flipping burgers for minimum wage or working day labor.
