Teacher: Some of you will continue on to take advanced math, the rest will take our new class,"Don't buy that, you can't afford it."
Awfully early to start school, aren’t we? I know, I know. SOME places like Arizona do. My cousins’ children are there.
I don’t get this one. Is she saying that the less intelligent students can’t do math well enough to know how to use their money?
At last!A teacher who is actually preparing students for life in the real world!They will shut her up for hurting feelings, shortly.
Right on the nose, on a couple of levels. Shoot, now I’m all ticked off >:(

louieglutz: I don’t think that was ever permitted in Texas. Back in the 1960s, when I presided over the Texas Consumer’s Association, we were trying. Truth in Labeling, Truth in Lending, etc. at the federal level was a piece of cake compared to trying to drag “the only lege we’ve got” into the 20th century.
the 3 dogs couldn’t be bothered with whatever the old man said. They didn’t want no part of chasing the cat thru the barn.
