Jon Stewart is absolutely hilarious and I love that he is trying to bring attention to the insanity that is happening in education right now.  However, it is difficult to listen to people talk so negatively about the teaching profession.  One thing that really bothers me is when people act like they know all about something when they obviously do not have a clue - I feel like many people **think** they know what a teacher's job is like, but really they have idealized what they see as the perks of position (such as summer break) until their version is almost unrecognizable from the truth.  I truly hope that everyone realizes what the effect of these actions will be on the education of our students before they have too much of a negative impact.

I loved that episode & told all my co-workers about it yesterday. I think I'll put it up on my blog too. Thanks for the idea.
