Refreshing to see wood floors in a classroom. So used to dirty linoleum.

You mean the top 25% who pay over 80% of the taxes? Riiiight. Because they sure tax the shit out of the bottom 50% who pay less than 4% of taxes...

I think that serves the point on how much wealth is spread over such a small area at and near the top. If there was a larger % of people with a greater income, wouldn't that ease the tax burden of the top?

That's pretty much teachers in a nutshell. Some of the hardest partiers I've ever met.

So true. We went pretty hard in teachers college, but I didn't expect to be outdone by a bunch of 30 year olds on a friday night.

Cheers, NYR. I like seeing different classrooms to get new ideas for my students. Cool room... everything except that Rangers tribute wall.

Nope. The govt would just tax more people.

Please don't derail this thread with the politics bull...it was one small point in a larger comment re: how people view education...what they say and what they do. I understand where you come from, and you all seem pretty intelligent, so I assume you at least understand my view, even if we don't agree. Lets keep this thread on topic.

Oh please. You opened a door with a ridiculous statement and now want to shove everything back in. I, for one, agree with dah. I want the top 20% to have at least 35% of the people in it. Or something.

Why is it ridiclous to think that the wealthiest Amricans SHOULD pay more so ALL Americans (even the dirty poor) can benefit so maybe we can evolve as a society? My point is that this is a career forum, and the comment I made was a comment on HOW the product of PUBLIC EDUCATION (which is serviced by the career we're discussing) could be improved if people who could afford it paid more. Taking that and twisting into a political "liberal vs conservative" debate is for the CE thread, NOT HERE. You're not an idiot, an I think you should be able to separate the two. Conservatives surely aren't that insecure, or is it a guilty conscience that forces you to argue this in the wrong place.

Thats all I'm going to say here on this matter.

Shifting gears, how has the web changed your teaching in the last few years or if you're a new teacher, how do you incorporate the internet into your classroom? I'm presenting at a district Pro-D day on friday about the uses of Web 2.0 and 3.0 in the classroom (super nervous) and am interested in everyone's experiences.
