Ok, we all know that public high schools suck (private ones do too, but differently), but this is ridiculous!
A bright, young, prospective teacher was turned down by an Atlanta high school with this note from the principal:
Though your qualifications are quite impressive, I regret to inform you that we have selected another candidate. It was felt that your demeanor and therefore presence in the classroom would serve as an unrealistic expectation as to what high school students could strive to achieve or become. However, it is highly recommended that you seek employment at the collegiate level; there your intellectual comportment would be greatly appreciated. Good luck.
I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry.
