Thank You CBS News for the Facepalm Texas Teacher Headline
I saw it and had to put my face in my palm hence the title above. Then I had to crank up the Van Halen and forget all about it.
Aw come on!
We can't really blame CBS news for telling the truth. Do they need to be so exact about it?
"The Texas Education Agency reports it has launched 162 investigations of reported inappropriate teacher-student relationships between Sept. 1 and May 31. The Amarillo Globe-News reports that the agency had 188 investigations last fiscal year, marking at least the fifth year of growth in a row."
I don't know what to do about all this. I think this is a big deal. What about having all teachers in their 20s teach elementary school? If you're still of the age where you think it's OK to go out three nights a week with the girls, getting your fruity drinks in the big tall glasses while Nelly's "Hot in Here" plays at full volume so you can dance and go "whoooo," then you don't need to be near young people with burgeoning desires and raging hormones.
Yes I said it. I don't want to live in a place where that's the story every school year.
BONUS: proving once again that life imitates art, here's the video that animated the millions of fantasies....
