Ah the Wrenching Around.

You're getting wrenched around for God knows what. I once got booted off a job because the principal's NIECE wanted to sub to make some money. Who knows. Good for you for specifying your preferences...

You Will be On Your Own

Can We Get Off This Now? PLEASE?

It's Called the Pettiocracy.

It's called the Pettiocracy and no matter how well you do, how much you love the kids, you well get stung by it. In fact, sometimes I think you get stung by it if you are particularly good at your...

Distance Learning as Child Cruelty

The model we educate with is 400 years old and was cooked up by a bunch of religious white guys who could have cared less about what is best for kids. It is essentially a prison model. It keeps the...
