It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane…

It’s a dashing good piece of cinema, if I don’t say so myself.  Bully for Davis Guggenheim for standing up to the naysayers and sticking up for the Billionaire Point of View.  It’s good to see folks like that Rhee woman saying kids are getting a crappy education in those schools she runs.  Doubtless she’d be overjoyed to see them replaced by a chain of Smellington Academies.  Drat the luck that got her mentor out of office, but money and time, as always, will win the day.

I’m delighted with the folks at MSNBC, who usually spout liberal claptrap, for further publicizing the film.  Muffy was so moved by it that she and the poolboy had to spend an entire 45 minutes in the restroom so she could compose herself.  She missed the part where that awful Weingarten woman came on the screen.  Fortunately sinister music came on and the entire audience booed.  It’s about time we started firing more teachers.  Certainly we could hire them more cheaply and replace them more easily if our hands weren’t tied by those blasted contracts.

Remember, it’s children first.  And we’ll get to the children.  First we have to show those darn teachers who’s boss, and I think this film will help us enormously in our efforts.

    It was a really good movie! Everyone should go out and see it. There’s really only one way to save kids and that’s by creating more charter schools. It’s common sense really.

  2. KIPP Teacher – I agree – more charter schools, more private money – and let’s send poor kids with special needs and no parent involvement to Rikers at birth, since they’ll probably just end up there anyway.

    Good call!

    • I was totally thinking the same thing when I saw the film. Just give them their prison numbers when they enter kindergarten.

      (and methinks KIPPTeacher missed that course in advanced irony . . . )

        You know there’s nothing wrong with being civil. This is why so many people hate public school teachers. You go around insulting everyone for no reason. That’s why the movie shows us doing so much better a job than you do. My mother always said it’s nice to be important but it’s important to be nice. That’s why we teach our students to work hard and be nice. Judging from Waiting for Superman you guys don’t teach your students anything at all. That’s why you need those contracts and tenure and everything. I don’t need any of that stuff because I do my job.

    I disagree. I think it’s better to just send kids to charter schools. Charters are much better than public schools and kids learn a lot more. We tell them to work hard and be nice and that’s what everyone wants. You can’t go to jail for that.
