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.”

cf:

“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.”
