[QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by NaturalResources: [qb] [QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [qb] ..... I'm sorry that NR had to suffer the "shame" of being not of standard issued and design from his peers because he was a skinny kid. I wonder if he had an ignorant but well meaning teacher suggest in front of the class that he should go and get checked for a tape worm, (with the added embarrassing "understanding" that, if your parents can't afford a [i]regular[/i] doctor they can take you to the County Health Department to get it done)? I Had that happen and I remember how deeply it hurt and how it hurt so much more and so long after because it supported all the insults and crap I had to put up with from my class mates. (But, what can a 6 foot tall 112 pound growing boy in the 6th grade expect from a product of a teachers college? Respect?) ..... [/qb][/QUOTE]LOL, that happened to you too!?! ...Kinda ironic how I can laugh about it now, considering how I felt when it happened.... Maybe we had the same teacher? Either that or schools instruct their teachers to recommend that all skinny kids get checked for tape worms. [/qb][/QUOTE]Even today, the urging to perform such an act in elementary classrooms is a standard part of the elementary education curriculum in colleges. It is there in their text books, just like the explanaion that the "purpose" of mathematics is to keep the students busy and quiet when the teacher has "important" work to do and as a means of punisment for kids that don't sit quietly like good little girls. I once agreed to substitute over a couple of weeks for a collegue who had to be out of town in a graduate class of mathematics for elementary school teachers and scoffed when they told me those two. The next day they brough three standard text books for education classes in which both were set out with emphisis. [/QB][/QUOTE]
