Plagues of Public Education

In honor of the reading of Exodus.... the ten plagues with ten helpful commandments

1. new students with stupid names - Thou shalt not name thy child something unreadable or unpronouncable or any combination of letters that will inflate thine own ego
2. students who don't realize they are not the only child in the room - Thou shalt recognize other living things around you and treat them as you would like to be treated
3. sarcastic administrators - Thou shalt lead with honor and integrity and save off color comments for after hours events
4. young boys sharing information gleaned from late night pay per view television - Thou shalt not profane thy children's eyes with thine crappy television choices
5. overly eager students- Thou shalt respond in temperance and not peck thy teacher as ducks
6. broken pencils- Thou shalt bring quality implements to complete thine assignments
7. unplanned parent conferences- Thou shalt respect the schedule of thy child's teacher
8. insecure children who require constant assurances that they did their work- Thou shalt teach thine own child that life does not come with a constant assurance that they have done well. Allow them to walk in faith in their own products
9. dehydration myths- Thou shalt not abuse the free water granted to you, less it become bitter and foul in thy stomach
10. differentiated instruction vs. SpEd modification vs. best teaching practices- Thou shalt allow teachers to teach, adminsitrators to administrate, and children to learn without the confusion of philosophy that is wispy like the wind
