Teacher Suspended for Humorous Math Test

from the those-who-can’t-teach,-teach-math dept.

A Canadian math teacher apparently based a real test on the somewhat-funny “City of Los Angeles High School Math Proficiency Exam,” which features word problems describing gang members, crime, and prostitutes. The teacher has been stripped of her classroom duties and suspended without pay for three days. Canadians have no sense of humor.

    You’re an idiot. What educational system would find sterotyping a certain ethinc group to a class of students “humorous.” You must be American.

    Guilty as charged, on both counts: idiot AND American. But it still cracks me up that the address from which you posted this comment resolves to HSE-Ottawa-ppp158032.sympatico.ca. To quote Steve Martin from My Blue Heaven, “NO sense of humor whatsoever.”
