Teachers are Dumb
I attended a meeting requested by parents that intended to determine their student's academic needs. They believe the student should be served in special education; there is no data to suggest this is necessary.
At one point during this lengthy meeting, a lawyer for the parents mentioned that the student wanted to become a teacher. And in his account, he made the statement that the student should pursue this career path because, unlike the medical profession, a prospective teacher need only attain a C average to get into college and then prove capable as a teacher.
Now, I cannot boast a superior G.P.A., grades have never been important to me, but the audacity to suggest that teachers lack comparable intelligence to other professions enraged me.
