Hypocrisy

Ever notice how whenever there is a big story on the national news the local news also covers that same story the same day? Not even the same day but the same HOUR for crying out loud. So when NBC is done covering a story, the local channel 12 news starts covering that very same story a MINUTE later. Hmm...don't they think that because we just saw the story on the national news that we don't want to hear about it again on their lame news show? Are you telling me they don't have anything DIFFERENT to report on that may be directly related to that city? Copycats...

See that's just it. We tell students not to copy or cheat, but news shows do the same thing. Or we tell kids that fighting isn't the way to solve anything, while the countries go to war with each other. Such fucking hypocrisy.

In that case, teachers shouldn't bother trying to break up fights or stop cheating. Then maybe the little shits who do those things can be done with. And when time is not wasted on such things, maybe teachers can get some real teaching of the core subjects in!

they could get in teaching of not core subjects, too

True, true. Although my point there is to highlight that teaching of the basics just doesn't seem to happen as much. It just seems that kids learn math at a slower rate than I used to when I was in elementary school, and they certainly don't teach grammer anymore, causing all sorts of problems later.

Actually, they teach math faster than we were kids, in light of The Test. Kids are doing multiplication tables in second grade. I distinctly remember doing them late in third and into fourth, though I was in a different state. I think that's part of why so many kids don't get it.

Where don't they teach grammar? They do in every school I've worked in...

I learned multiplication tables in the 2nd grade. So looks like they're just now getting caught up with that with The Test (blech). They probably teach minimal grammar basics, but not in full detail (at least I wasn't, not that I can remember anyway). I learned more grammar principles through studying foreign languages than through English classes.

Actualy, many people have commented to me that they didn't learn grammar well.
