Fairy Tales, Irony and the Dismal State of Education


A little rant:

Do you know the one about the teacher who brain-washes his students all day with supernatural fairy tales? At that private school that openly tells the world that they are proudly fairy tale orientated? The guy who says, without a trace of irony, that the state of education in the rest of the country is in a dismal state? The same fairy tale mongerer who, again without the slightest nod to irony, bemoans the fact that kids these days can’t think critically and reason independently?

You must know him. Or her. I know hundreds of them. I wish they would just stay away from the teaching profession instead of filling so many curious young minds with such obvious nonsense – and closing them off to rational thought.

That is all.

Live long and prosper. _\\//
