    Re comments about lack of respect for the fluff fields, that's just the way it is. Pragmatically, some of the less demanding degrees are full of busy work with little merit. Regarding the teaching "profession" (if one can actually call it a profession), it's a joke. Those people are glorified babysitters. Most can't even muster the brain power to do something as simple as college alegebra. Re courses such as social studies and similar areas that students are required to take: those courses seem a lot more like liberal propaganda and indoctrination of young minds. The liberals pretty well run the educational system in the US. The 3 R's are lost in the process. Those 3 R's are highly significant in attaining and doing well in future employment as an adult. Let's just put it this way, most nurses could do a much better job of teaching children what they really need to know including some of the hard core math and sciences. It's a travesty that people are required to spend 4 years on mostly pure rubbish coursework in order to teach. To reiterate, the leftist slant has no business in the world of impressionable young children. Teachers, in general, are paid far too much based on the level of difficulty (ie. ease) of their degrees and also based on the number of days they actually work compared to most people. They are basically fluff-educated government leeches sucking off the tax payer. Quite frankly, it's not fair to the children in this country either.

    In every profession are people that shouldn't be there but to say the things you have said is ridiculous...That's just the way it is you say...regarding your lack of respect for the "fluff fields", so what is a real field to you? You are absolutely wrong in your statements, but the facelessness of the internet allows people to act this way... the end!

    And the liberals don't run the education system, you'd be surprised how close of a friend of your kind run the educational system. Its not the teacher's fault that (in Florida) they have to teach FCAT most of the time instead giving students core knowledge needed in the real world. Teachers dont make the curriculum, it is given to them. They don't choose the books, they are given to them. They are tasked with making their students learn, finding where they are weak and creating ways to strengthen them. I have had great teachers, not all of them were but some really helped me to learn and what you say is an insult to all of them.

    WHY am I so amused? Guessing someone is a teacher or former teacher. Seems I hit the nail on the head and a little too close to home for comfort. Advice: get a REAL degree and get the hell out of the tax payers' pockets. Repeat after me class: "Middle class welfare queen!" People like you are dragging this country down. You're always wanting something for free at someone ELSE's expense. Get some pride and get a REAL work ethic!! We are NOT your parents nor do we owe you a darned thing. Fend for YOURSELF...you're an adult, correct?! Or...perhaps you'd prefer to move to Europe and LEACH off the system like all the bums there do...we don't need more bums here! (May I suggest Greece?!!!) No wonder people like you never get ahead and no wonder you're always so full of class envy. If people like you spent nearly as much time on a real education and developing a REAL work ethic as you do scheming to steal from the tax payers while mired in envy, you might actually get somewhere in life. Geezus. Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (Betting this one hates the "rich" too...chuckle). Whatever happened to this country's spirit of independence and pride in doing for oneself? Where is the integrity? Let me give you a little hint: all those CEO's and other "rich" so many love to hate actually worked a LOT harder than most people have ever worked to get where they are in life. Perhaps you'd do better to emulate them rather than to hate them. There is much to be learned from others' successes. The US used to be such a great country. Hopefully, one day, she will be restored to her former glory...

    BTW, in case it's not clear, you are not, I repeat NOT, "entitled" to OTHER people's hard-earned money. STOP thief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
