An annoyed biology teacher

The Secretary of Education wrote a letter to teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week, and you might say it pushed the wrong button for a high school biology teacher, but you know, it's good to have a good rant every now and again. Let it out!
I read your Teacher Appreciation Week letter to teachers, and had at first decided not to respond. Upon further thought, I realized I do have a few things to say. I'll begin with a small sample of relevant adjectives just to get them out of the way: condescending, arrogant, insulting, misleading, patronizing, egotistic, supercilious, haughty, insolent, peremptory, cavalier, imperious, conceited, contemptuous, pompous, audacious, brazen, insincere, superficial, contrived, garish, hollow, pedantic, shallow, swindling, boorish, predictable, duplicitous, pitchy, obtuse, banal, scheming, hackneyed, and quotidian. Again, it's just a small sample; but since your attention to teacher input is minimal, I wanted to put a lot into the first paragraph."
You can read the rest
here. Yes, what he said!
The Phactor would probably like this fellow.

Now, this guy sounds like a reasonable sort. I move we kick out Arne Duncan and replace him with a REAL TEACHER! Thanks, Phactor, for your shout out for teachers everywhere.
