    Sorry if this has been posted before...but I thought it was cute :)


    Teacher's Application


    After being interviewed by the school administration, the eager teaching
    prospect said: "Let me see if I've got this right . .
    You want me to go into that room with all those kids, and fill their every
    waking moment with a love for learning. And I'm supposed to instill a sense
    of pride in their ethnicity, modify their disruptive behavior, observe them
    for signs of abuse and even censor their T-shirt messages and dress habits.
    You want me to wage a war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases,
    check their backpacks for weapons of mass destruction, and raise their self
    esteem. You want me to teach them patriotism, good citizenship, sportsmanship,
    fair play, how to register to vote, how to balance a checkbook, and how to
    apply for a job.
    I am to check their heads for lice, maintain a safe environment, recognize signs
    of anti-social behavior, make sure all students pass the mandatory state exams,
    even those who don't come to school regularly or complete any of their
    assignments.
    Plus, I am to make sure that all of the students with handicaps get an equal
    education regardless of the extent of their mental or physical handicap. And I
    am to communicate regularly with the parents by letter, telephone, newsletter
    and report card. All of this I am to do with just a piece of chalk, a computer,
    a few books, a bulletin board, a big smile AND on a starting salary that
    qualifies my family for food stamps!
    You want me to do all of this and yet you expect me NOT TO PRAY???

    I kind of like this but you know you are allowed to pray- just not to lead prayer or teach prayer in public school. In your own mind and heart, in your own private time you can pray all you want...please feel free to do so.
