Whose Grasp ?

If you have NOT heard about her, lets talk about the Sacramento California teacher who is standing firm in her intent to remove works by William Shakespeare from her English literature curriculum... There are some very subversive tendencies in this particular teacher.

Her job is not to be sure that everybody passes with a ladylike or gentlemanly "C". Her  job is to use her common sense to make the material exciting and inviting to young minds.

Just a few miles awayfrom this Dullard, another woman engages her students in the Bard's  pre-drama preparation for Romeo and Juliet and points out that what they first see as unlikely behavior and words, by the Motagues and Capulets is actually a part of  their family lives and their hallway romances.  Then, HER students tried to outdo one another in presenting the drama of the teenage lovers.

The worst thing about this .Liddite Shakespeare-Denier is that she uses the color of her students' skin as an excuse for her mental laziness and invocation of the soft bigotry of low expectations that is so lethally common in our schools today. She would be shocked to learn that Shakespeare is required in South Africa and Liberia as well as Germany in preparatory schools.

Then of course, we cannot excuse her ignorance of  that magisterial proclamation by another towering English language artist:

By now, you have heard anout the criminally idiotic teacher in Sacramento's Burbank high school who refuses to teach William Shakespeare to her English class students because they are mostly "nonwhite" and because they "do not relate" and because she fears that they will fail, and it will bend  or twist or dampened their little psyches.

If you haven't met this lady, let me introduce you to her HERE !

There are many things faulty about the thinking of the 21st century's anemic "educationists" who have no knowledge outside of their improvised teaching college's  bogus cur
