"We don't need no education. We don't need no thought control." That song made me think of school teachers I've had who hurt me by singling me out and making me feel like sh* because of my showing symptoms of my already having been hurt to begin with. I particularly remember the p.e. teacher in my first year of high school making some comment of my needing to "get with it" because i was " walking around like some kind of zombie" . Everyone laughed when he said it and it set me up to be the kid that everyone picked on and who had no friends for the rest of that year and the year after too.

I was a zombie...because i had been abused! So how did that make me deserve to be ridiculed?

blueshift,

You didn't deserve that at all, and I can relate to how you feel. My nemesis in high school was an absolute bastard of a gym teacher who missed no opportunity to mock me for being shy and not a jock at all. I think the low point came when I wrote a poem as a tribute to Robert Frost, who had just died. The gym teacher said in our class that "all poets are queers" and "only queers write poems about other queers". What a piece of work. Another occasion he blamed me for writing a term paper on North Vietnam: he asked me if my parents were "commies" and wondered why I would write a term paper about an African (!!!!!) country without any culture.

I wonder if assholes like this can still get into the system. I hope not. I watched for it when my own kids were in school here in the UK, but nothing like that appeared.

Much love,
Larry

An African country! lol Good thing they didn't have him teaching geography! I laugh, but it really is sad that idiots like that manage to get jobs where they can oppress young people with their stupidity.

My wife is a teacher and a good one and she sees this kind of thing way to often where a bad person in put in charge of impressionable kids and inflicts all kinds of rudness and harm on them.
So sad. All some want is a job with three months off.

yeah, they need a job with twelve months off! All in all they're just another brick in the wall.

I've always referred to my main perp as my Teacher. He was actually my piano teacher, and he taught me a lot of other things. Anyway, the phrase "Teacher! Leave those kids alone!" has always struck a deep chord in me.

I love Pink Floyd.
