Are you former TSA or current?TSA:
You can actually travel with Weed if you have a Club Card, don't know the exact amount but it's a reasonable amount for personal use. Say if you travel outta California where it's
ok to possess....soon as you land in a different state with strict rules, you are at risk but to my knowledge its rare to see a K9 roaming the airport at every single hour of the day.
The actually "tests" and "trials" with the new body scanner is not as official as you think. In our training your actually trained to read a paragraph to hesitant passengers but
upon actual research the actual tests done were by credible Colleges but they tested it BASED off paperwork constructed by TSA. What that means is they gave Universities' numbers
and they compile it off software, they never even had the actual scanner to test themselves.
If you decide to "Opt-Out" the body scanner, make sure your early as hell for your flight cause workers are lazy enough to walk to the bathroom to avoid a pat down.
Quickest way to make it through Security, FOLLOW THE RULES. The minute you ACT UP or start talkin bout "Rights"....you just delayed your WHOLE entire process for EXTRA screening.
Be courteous and you're good. Be a problem and find yourself being interviewed by Police for being a hazard via Supervisor's Request...which is another reason why Police hate us too.
Seriously, if you're gonna OPT OUT let someone know up front and have your bags at your side if your THAT concerned with having things stolen. Don't put your @%*$ in the X-Ray and opt-out....OPT-OUT WITH YOUR PROPERTY NEXT TO YOU and the next available screener will oblige and process YOU and YOUR PROPERTY at the same time.
You can mouth off to us all you want about how you are "better" than us....but more than 80% of the time you fly economy and I am SOOOOOO sorry your Private Jet wasn't available at this time.
If you are actually first class, it doesn't really matter anymore, "killing the line" is the mentality.
When I was in college I ran an after school program. At that point I was undeclared and seriously looking at teaching as a profession. It burned me out, much credit to all the good teachers out there.I work in education.
If the students I work with are any indication of the future of this country, then we are in some trouble.
These kids are lazy, rude, ignorant, tuned-out, etc. It's all really rather unfortunate to see...
Of course, there are the few gems, but they are always few and far between.
But really though, the kind of stratified dystopia made evident in Brave New World-- I can honestly see that taking shape in the present; and unfortunately, many of the students I work with are actively, but unknowingly, stratifying themselves into gammas, deltas, and epsilons.
Probably can't fault them entirely though. The system itself is screwed up.
I just really hope that I can make some difference in their lives.
Simplifying something that is extremely complicated. What is the single greatest problem with education in America? Do you think it's a "one size fits all" problem? Do you think the education is the solely to blame for poor performance in inner city schools?You work in education and can't even address the single greatest problem with education in America. That's scarier than whatever you have to say about the kids you work with.
Curious: What exactly are these higher standards that teachers should be held to?It's tough to "lay blame", is reform needed? Definitely. Are there bad educators? Most definitely. Teachers should be held to higher standards, and traditional teaching methods should be scrapped for newer more progressive forms of teaching.
No offense man but u sound like a teacher that has given up. Not to get on u or nothing but shouldn't u have a more better mindsetTeaching, is good only if you work for the wizard of oz district. Some kids r just lazy and it is the parents fault for raising them. Teachers get blammed for kids not doing their work when the Teacher has nothing to do with it. So many interventions its ridiculous, testing kids every week makes school boring. It is not the same as the 90s late 90s early 2000s. If you want to teach , teach at a private school because kids do not care, and the school thinks it is the teachers fault. You just get tired of it.
