What's with all the Bad/Pervy Teacher threads on DU?
You can't swing a dead cat in LB without hitting one.

Still waiting for parity: Bad Lawyer and Bad Doctor threads.

1. Doctors and Lawyers are already privatized -
what you are viewing is the marketing for destruction of public education.

5. Must be because teachers are overpaid and contribute so little to the betterment of society

6. It's really quite chilling, actually
The perception management that's going on is pretty transparent once you are on to it.

Waiting for Superman, Bad Teacher, all the gushing publicity and hype about charter schools (much of it distorted and some of it just outright wrong) and, of course, the steady stream of stories of the rare teachers who are dysfunctional or worse. All teachers are bad, and all Muslims are terrorists. That's all you need to know.

Although many of us sheepishly recognize in retrospect those cases when we were manipulated, it's alarming how few people recognize propaganda while they are being subjected to it.

8. It's overreaction to the PSU scandal ...
just the usual behavior of chattering hairless apes.

9. Aaaaaand here's another one tonight
Teacher runs porn sites from school-issues computer.

I expected better from DU.

This smells to me like a FUD campaign against teachers on DU.
