Let's Keep Kids Stupid Dept., cont'd

Here are some more high school bureaucrats (this time back east) who deserve unemployment. They join a growing list of numbskulls who make decisions about young people these days.

and a little child shall lead them.

Public Schools nowadays exist only to benefit teachers and administrators, not students. Here in The Dalles the local high school offers a robotics class. That's fine except for the fact that the teacher knows nothing about robotics...and he's the first one to admit that. He's a wood shop teacher (and a good one, at that) babysitting that class for a term.
This teacher has asked me to teach electronics in his class so the kids would get at least some knowlege about robotics. This is not a knock on the teacher. In fact this teacher should get a medal because he at least cares enough to try and educate the students in the subject matter. Most teachers just care about getting a paycheck and that's it.
I have taught electronics at that school at least 20 times over the years and, even though the school district could easily give me a temporary contract to teach that subject they will not. They have a class of kids and a teacher they are legally obligated to provide with a job and it doesn't matter whether anybody gets educated.
Such scenarios are pretty typical for the public school system. And we wonder why our kids can't compete in the workplace.
