ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO FIND THIS OUT!!!!!

I live near a school district which is possibly the highest paying one in the country, although definitely one of them. The pay is on par with what a professor can expect at a university, and yet, this year, the teachers planned to strike for more benefits (which was averted since the district caved into their demands).

www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/16/teachers-take-issue-with-_n_1677716.html

As part of a controversial teacher merit-pay law adopted by the Florida Legislature last year, half of a teacher’s evaluation is now based on student test score data, and the other half on a new, more detailed method of observing teachers in action.

The law took effect last July, which means the new assessment system was put to use during the 2011-12 school year. It requires that test-score information be used to help judge teacher quality and eventually help determine pay.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has also repeated his support for merit pay, noting that educators should have starting salaries of $60,000 and the opportunity to earn up to $150,000 annually based on performance.


It seems that by doing this Florida is starting to disregard what makes their educational system work. By paying teachers based on grades, you do not inspire learning. The teachers, motivated by pay, will make things easy for the students with multiple choice exams, for example. On standardized tests, such a method of teaching will not fare well (which would, in the long term, result in a deduction of said standards while in the short term it would deduct Florida's ranking on the achievement list).

I had an English teacher in 8th grade who was strict. Many of my companions got mediocre grades, but I, an A, by actually doing the course work. If she were to have headed an easy class, I would have simply not learned like was the case in many other subjects.

tbo.com/news/politics/hernando-teacher-unions-sue-over-florida-evaluations-b82479062z1

The above shows that the evaluation process puts this 50% of the pay on the standardized state test via all subjects. So, a biology teacher is paid his individual 50% allotment through what the teacher's students' grade median is in all of their classes.

I've been seeing all this recently, although I find it very odd that they're going by FCAT scores when there's only one FCAT for high schoolers now, and you only take it in your first two years. No idea about Elementary and Middle.

Of course, the allotment is an addition to the starting salary but we are seeing how the teachers are acting with the opportunity, suing over that Standardized Test score clause.

Companies should sponser schools and treat teaching like sports, the different classes compete around the countries in tournaments and whoever wins gets scholarships and lots of money for the school.

I get the point, but basketball, and all pro athletes have skills that only a handful of people in the world have, whereas most could get grants go to school and get a teaching degree, I hate when people say athletes make to much, for all the money they make, the owners still make more.

the main issue with people saying athletes make too much is that they usually willingly increase what they can get paid. merchandise and tickets give the team ******** of money. would you rather the owners sit with it all or give it to the players who are earning them that money

In comparison, but they would absolutely school most semi-pros, while there are plenty of non teachers that would make better teachers than some people who have teaching as an occupation.

Because no one is motivated to become a teacher, why do that, and make a piss-poor salary when there is a thousand other jobs you could do out there and make more more money?

Professional athletes only make money because their fans allow it; if nobody bought jerseys or went to games, they wouldn't be making the millions everybody is complaining about.

Also, I think teachers should be making way more than they do- assuming the quality of the education they provide is superb.

Technically, the multiverse theory suggests that parallel universes would operate under the same laws of physics as ours. I can't see how being fat would give you an edge in basketball.

Different rules, it is now a full contact sport.
Considering there is no defined set of rules for the multiverse theory except an infinite number of universes where anything or everything could be different, then physics could be different, or the same, theoretically, there could be a universe exactly the same, but with magic, meaning that physics would be different.

No, magic goes against the laws of physics. Your "full contact sport" theory is plausible, and alternative rules that would make being fat an advantage is something I considered, but it's pushing it to say the least.

Not necessarily. The multiverse theory also includes the very beginning of said universe, and since physical laws didn't come into existence until after the big bang, there's a possibility that different physical laws came into play.

"Magic" isn't in the realm of possibilities in the multiverse theory, end of discussion. Physics would be the same, or at least similar, as/to ours.

A good teacher is about as rare as a good athlete. No, they aren't payed enough. My mom's a teacher, and when I hear about the **** she goes through each day I'm happy that she loves teaching more than anything, because otherwise, she'd be miserable.

I agree with you but you are over generalizing. There are teachers who work damn hard for their students and know their ****. You also forget about the teachers who have a damn Ph.D and decide to teach to help the future.

An argument could also be made that teachers are far more important that N.B.A. players, and I'd support that argument.
