BULLETIN – EAS ACTIVATION REQUESTED SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WICHITA KS 235 PM CDT WED APR 8 2015 THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN WICHITA HAS ISSUED A * SEVERE
That was yesterday. Last night I watched the tail end of a giant T-Storm curl off to the southeast as they normally do when they die. It was a beaut. And ugly. It must have been fifteen miles or better when it turned and drifted off toward Elk County.
So far no reports of injuries or damages. ‘Tis the season.
The School Teacher (part timer) that from last week was arraigned for three counts of child abuse – at least one count each with two 17 year old boys; and one count of illicit communications with a 15 year old.
A personal thought: We teach Sex Ed in third graders. Use to was, when the juices flowed silly things happened. Now, we teach them before the juices flow and, glory be, the only course of all the reading, writing and Rithmatic they can experiment with and receive immediate feedback is sex.
For some teachers genned up over course material and fresh young faces, readily available, temptation gives way to tutored homework. Seems to go together. Youth, after all, if examined, is made for mating and childbearing, it’s natural.
The excuse of she/he, as teach, and older, should have better self control, really isn’t much to hang a thing upon. As the farmer observed, the most apples stolen are from the trees closest to the fence, and I’ll add, from the lowest branches.
Probably, without fact checking or running numbers, I’d almost wager that the upward trend in failed marriage and bastardization of our children started about the time of declining educational standards, the fluffing off of blue labor skills and apprenticeship shops, and the inception of sex related courses –all, by the request of the teachers watching the budget, losing track of the greater good and giving the teachers pud courses to instruct.
I think, sometimes, the teachers themselves don’t have the smarts or patience to teach civics, history, English or math, so they opt to find and teach pud courses, like sex, basket weaving and recess.
My monthly rant.
