John Wall Got A Class Full Of Kids (Taught By The Most Shameless Teacher Ever) A '100' On Their Math Final
I don't want to paint the entire teaching profession with a broad stroke, but if they want their calls for higher salaries to be taken seriously then they should probably have a sit down with their peers that are lazily passing out 100's by the classroom at the click of a celebrity's button. I'm not offended that the youth of America is getting stupider by the second, but educators that get summers off are already fighting an uphill battle for additional financial benefits without pawning off their grading on professional athletes.
Credit to John Wall for doing right by some kids in getting them out of a math test, but there's very little arithmetic to be learned from a retweet. Ms. Gilbert ain't got no man and therefore she should have plenty of free time to check the work of 20-some odd kids that just pulled an A+ out of their ass by convincing their teacher into letting her lack of occupational integrity go viral. I know how useless algebra can be in the long run, but that doesn't mean I need the next generation growing up thinking that a point guard's social media account can get them out of studying fruitless crap like the rest of us had to. I don't mean to be a buzzkill, but I'm going to guess that most of these kids don't have a killer crossover that's going to expedite their higher education so maybe let's consider fan interaction to be extra credit instead of automatic triple digits for everyone.
