Teachers consume alcohol during school dance!

In another shocking display of "What were they thinking?", two teachers consumed a flask of alcohol on school property and another encouraged students to raise their bottles in a toast to their teachers.

The only thing keeping this story from making the rounds of the "reform" crowd is the fact that it happened on NBC's Teachers sitcom, which has already raised the ire of The EdWonks and I have to say is one of the dumbest portrayal of teachers I've ever seen. Tuesday night's show was actually the second time in this short lived series teachers have been shown drinking on school property.

I can't decide if it was dumber than the Boston Public episode where a teacher fired a gun in class and got a stern lecture.

Is "Teachers" in L I M B O ???? How L O W will they go?

Personally, I have not wasted my time watching it. It will go away.....

I saw that episode of Boston Public, which resulted in my never watching it again.

I watched Teachers for maybe five minutes. It was so stupid I could go no longer.

It was the last time I watched Boston Public also.

Teachers like these who act like students pulling one over on the administration do not last long...we hope.

I sort of wondered. When teachers watchs TV shows about teachers, do they get upset about how fake and insulting it is; or do they laugh and enjoy it.

We loathe how fake and insulting it is.

We use our sense of humor to watch "Arrested Development" or "King of the Hill" reruns.

My first and only experience with "Boston Public" involved a teacher having sex with a student. After I held back the gag reflex, I vowed never to return.
