    Default USA: N.C. Teacher Calls Student a Loser on her Paper

    Student a Loser on her Paper

    Rex Roland, who teaches sixth grade at Enka Middle School in Candler, North Carolina, said he was joking when he called one of his students a 'loser' on her paper, but her mother Patty Clement does not see it that way.


    She wants Rex Roland to be suspended.

    This is not the first time Mr. Roland has called that student a loser either. Back in November he also wrote 'loser' in red ink on the girl's paper and this time he wrote 'minus 20% for being a loser' and then underlined 'loser' twice...

    Wow, how exemplary. I think he should be suspended too, and put into therapy.

    Whats his excuse? Revving the children up for high school?

    I love how he claims it's his way of trying to relate to the students.

    Dumb lie, or do you think he really could be that ignorant?

    C'mon Americans hate losers while we love losers.

    So he was only carrying out his cultural imperative. Calling someone a loser is as American as apple pie.

    If you call us losers, we just laugh at you.

    I'd really like to have a look at the paper.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    LOL. So I have to look at both links. Okay, okay. I'll stop being lazy.

    <------ -20% for being a loser

    Edit: They didn't show the text of the paper, that I could see. I'd like to see that.

    In America, we reward sociopathic incompetence. They should make the teacher Secretary of Education.
