How many times does Jaywalking show folks giving the right answers? How many individuals do they encounter in a day of taping to come up with 30 seconds worth of silliness?

Using an entertainment clip to try to pump up one's sense of doom and gloom will only work on the truly ignorant.

But I do have students come back from college each year to thank me for helping them prepare for the rigors of study in the sciences.
That's great. Your work in a sense has been validated. But you know in conversations with some in the profession today I've been getting signs that there's some pessimism in that the so-called 'administration' sometimes makes the teaching job harder. They believe the teaching profession has changed and perhaps not for the good. Some teachers I know have been 'burned-out'. Not sure if that's status quo now but perhaps it's a clue as to what is going on in the profession today. With all that i wonder if teachers of the future will be able to be, like you, thanked and 'reinforced' for what you did in your time with students.

I wonder what CNNNN stands for. How many folks got those questions right for them to find a handful who didn't? Funny how they never reveal that and uncritical minds never consider it, just taking the highly edited videos at face value.

Alex Jones! Now there's a credible source.

Strange they don't show how many folks called their bluff.

Sorry your kid's behind the power curve.

Must be a teacher's fault.

You're right. Nothing is ever the teacher's fault. They are perfect in every way.

Parents, the individual students themselves, the media. Basically our whole dumbed down society.
