21. Bad Teachers! Don't be getting in between the Military Industrial Complex and it's cannon fodder.
Edited on Tue Nov-27-07 07:04 AM by Pooka Fey
Or we'll shut you out of the profession forever!! Just try paying back your $40,000+ in student loans for the Master's degree that your district pushed you into because they needed a high percentage of "highly qualified" teachers to qualify for NCLB funds now! This is scary stuff. Bravo to those teachers.
