Had dinner with friends who were lamenting returning to work next week.  The biggest dread was two days of staff development.

This reminded me of the Torture Museum we visited in Rothenberg.  Those medieval people really knew how to make people suffer.  The wheels pictured above were used to roll over victims and cut them to shreds while they were still alive.  Too bad these people never heard of PD.  They could have inflicted just as much suffering without the bloody mess to cleanup.

More pictures here, on Facebook.

I know a lot of elementary teachers that are feeling that way. As much as they loved teaching, it's no longer teaching. They will be given extremes amount of nonsense paperwork and dictates--as well as larger classes. And they work for a principal who only knows one answers...."NO!"

Many of them have formed a Lotto club.
