Favorite comments of '10: Mrs C and ChemProf on the Blue School

(April 1st Times article on the Blue School)

Mrs C

Yes! They can play all day with glo-sticks and send the math home in the backpacks!!

It's so clever, and they get tons of money per student each year! Even the mob couldn't think of a racket this clever.


This doesn't bug me, because it is private. If parents want to spend their own money on this nonsense, then fine. My problem starts when they start using my tax dollars to duplicate it (since most elementary teachers I know would be charmed by this article) or when I am expected to send my kid to the public schools that follow this kind of philosophy.
