With all the hub-bub over the “Common Core” teaching method these days, lost in the shuffle is the dedication of teachers who are trying give a whole new meaning to “higher education”.
In an attempt to raise the bar of education or at the very least “keep the bar open”, one teacher has taken the initiative and added an additional “r” to the old school “readin’, ‘ritin” and ‘rithmatic”. Yes, you can now add “rehabin” to the list. Not content with teaching just the basics to today’s youngsters, this teacher has decided that life’s experiences are the best way to get a point across.
Realizing that a certain percentage of her charges will grow up to face addiction issues, this avant-garde educator decided that showing up drunk for class would leave a lasting impression of the perils of addiction that the students would not soon forget.
This progressive pedagogue gave her class a “whiff” of what it’s like to be an alcoholic. Arriving drunk on the first day of class was brilliant in its own right, but the fact that she showed up not wearing any pants was a touch of genius. Sort of a “show and tell” approach you might say
Law enforcement, not nearly as cutting edge as our heroine, arrested her for drunk and disorderly and public lewdness, which only punctuated the lesson that she so cleverly prepared. And here we thought today’s Common Core curriculum would be boring.
