Teacher Late Over 100 times – Tea Party Canada?
Teacher Llate Over 100 times – Tea Party Canada?
An elementary school teacher who was allowed to keep his job despite being late for work 111 times in two years said on Friday that breakfast is to blame for his tardiness.
“I have a bad habit of eating breakfast in the morning and I lost track of time,” 15-year veteran teacher Arnold Anderson told the Associated Press.
In a decision filed on 19 August, an arbitrator in New Jersey rejected an attempt by the Roosevelt elementary school to fire Anderson from his $90,000-a-year job, saying he was entitled to progressive discipline. But the arbitrator also criticized Anderson’s claim that the quality of his teaching outweighed his tardiness.
He was late 46 times in the most recent school year to 20 March and 65 times in the previous school year, the arbitrator said.
Anderson said he was one to two minutes late to school “at the most” but was prepared and was never late for class.
“I have to cut out eating breakfast at home,” he said on Friday.
Anderson remains suspended without pay until 1 January.
Canada needs a Donald to add spice to politics
Canadian politics need a Donald Trump.
When folks say The Donald is crazy rich, they’re right on both counts. But being crazy didn’t stop past leaders.
William Lyon Mackenzie King was a spiritualist, who “frequently sought contact with his mother and other dead relatives and friends.” John George Diefenbaker was, well he was John George Diefenbaker. I rest my case.
Anyone in Canada wanting to be Trump would have to get a bird’s nest, err hairpiece, of outlandish proportions to fill the bill.
We could solve the need for a movement for such a leader by founding our own Tea Party.
Traditionally tea parties have been afternoon socials in this country. Also, I’m a charter member of the Grey Bruce Afternoon Tea and Mule Appreciation Society but our mission is more related to tea-coloured beverages than politics, if you get my drift.
The Tea Party we need is an off-the-wall political movement that would turn a spotlight on the absurdities of politics in Canada.
The Rhinoceros Party used to be that way inclined but seems more mainstream now. One of the Rhino’s signature policies is a promise to keep none of its promises if elected. It escapes me how that differs from other mainstream parties.
Back to The Donald, the New York Times says that he does not “always make his own policy recommendations clear.” Seems just like the NDP’s current economic policies, if you ask me.
Trump proposes to build a “real wall,” on the U.S.-Mexico border, to keep illegal immigrants out. Since those two escaped convicts spent weeks scurrying around within spitting distance of our border in New York State, a wall might have appeal for the 49th parallel as well.
