Blame The Oncologist


The patient had a stage 4 cancer that spread throughout his entire body.  The oncologist did his best, but his best was not good enough and the patient died.  The oncologist got a U rating as was forced out of his job.

This did not happen.  Although the loss was hard, there was nothing the oncologist could do to save this patient.  Similarly, there are students that cannot be saved.  Closing schools and firing teachers will not help them.

Great commentary. Too bad so few get it.

Great analogy, PO'd. So few "get it" due to the thick and fast anti teacher propaganda from mainstream media and our imperial "representative democracy".
