    Does anyone else see the little bit of Roman numeral humor in today’s strip?

    But seriously, I’m ashamed of kids today. These kids are so dumb that they don’t even know who Neil Armstrong is or who invented the lightbulb. And they don’t want to know! It’s just pathetic and miserable.

    @Punished Snake Yes, I caught it also and yes, you are so right about public schools kids today, but rather than stupid, they are just lazy! Just as their parents were.That is why, I am a happily retired school teacher living in Florida next to a wonderful private school and with a daughter-in-law who home schools. There are bright kids today, just not in public schools.

    Sure there are, but they’re dozing off from the boredom of the public school teacher’s latest idiocy, there aren’t any smart teachers there any more.

    It’s not about educating the masses. It’s about programming them to believe everything is alright so nobody will question what the government is doing.

    There are 11 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don’t.

    Sometimes I had a bit too much fun in math class.

    thanks a lot…I am a teacher and there are plenty of us, intelligent and ready to teach.

    Its the system that makes it hard, testing all the time, relating to the new core standards that force us to teach things for which the children are not ready to learn.

    We must be a teacher, social worker, nurse, police, psychologist, parent to those whose parents are less than caring and loving, And all this to some students who live in situations that would make your skin crawl.

    I’m a teacher’s aide in a K-3 school. You are absolutely right. And forget discipline-according to the parents the teacher is wrong. They don’t want to be bothered. The kids know there are no consequences for bad behavior so it continues.

    yesterday my grandson was ill and I went to stay with him so he wouldn’t carry some germ to school. While I was there he logged on to a couple of websites and completed both Math and spelling homework. If they can go online and learn all this stuff, why go to school, I have always been a supporter of Home School, though when my kids were school age it was not an option. Keep the kids home, teach them your values, keep them safe from the nuts in this world, and still give them a good education.

    As the resident Intelligent Analpore in my grade school 50+ years ago I can remember responding to a similar quiz question the exact same way.
    Maybe some things aren’t so different after all…………..

    Did you ever listen to Tom Lehrer’s song New Math? I think you would really appreciate it. Just reading the lyrics is hilarious.
