[QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [QB] When one accepts the responsibilities of teaching the youth of a society, one, in that same act, cedes to the culture any right or privilege to perform the duties inherent to that position with even a hint of personal goal other than the honor of imparting to young minds the necessary information they will need in that subject matter for successful adulthood and building in their minds and egos the confidence that they can, based on the foundation they get in school, use, and expand on the use of, the subject in their life. One DOes NOT have the right or privilege to use the authority of the position as a show of power to enhance his own short commings, real or imaginary. The profession of teaching is one of responsibility and duty, resulting in long after the fact infinite pride in the successes of the students (with often little or no recognition of the influence of the teacher) one has had the privilege to influencing. For a teacher that prides himself on having been "hard" on the students, that is an impossible result, as that fact rather than the subject matter, by necessity, becomes the only practical goal of the student. The job is NOT to make it difficult, but to make it easy and pleasurable and a tool worthy of keeping for use through a lifetime. (That was in your beloved 3rd person, in order to possibly, not probably, tweak your obviously dormant or dead sense of responsibility. I doubt it there really is anough there to tweak.) What you describe doing dishonors those in an honorable profession, not only those in it that teach mathematics, but all of them. If you were capable of understanding you wouldn't be capable of using a the teaching of mathematics as a device to pump your own ego and could not, even in jest, brag about having done so. So' I'll offer no explanation to the Munchkin Man. You have earned the disgust of any and every worthwhile teacher everywhere for all time. I'll put it in terms you claim to understand and you brag that you expected your students to understand and accept without recourse or explanation: You flunked. You flunked as a teacher. You flunked as a teacher of mathematics. You flunked as a responsible adult. You flunked as a decent human being. [b]NO RE-EXAMS AND NO RE-EVALUATION OF THE GRADE.[/b] [/QB][/QUOTE]
