Good golly, Miss Molly

There is an old joke that says that those who can’t teach teach teachers. I recently received an illustration of this fact, in the form of an email message from a company that, supposedly, trains teachers. I get these email messages because I am in the process of getting my teaching certificate. Here is the relevant portion of the email:

“If you are unable to do so, you will be required to take the new course in its’ entirety to receive credit.”


“The things that are tearing our country apart, are incompetent professors and teachers, brought about by affirmative action, and our economy is suffering seriously from do-nothing government workers.”
