Dumb and Dumber

Incredible. It's bad enough to have the teachers' unions complaining about, but now the Minister for Education has joined the unions in stupidity.
Mary Hanafin said that when teachers rate their pupils' performance it is done in private.

She said it is entirely inappropriate that teachers' performances should be rated on a website in such a public way.
Is she kidding me? How about a I have a few things to say about the current Minister for Education. She'd get a big fat :-( from me.

She should be fired right now. It's nonsense like this that convinces me that we don't need a Department of Education or a Minister for Education.

Hey Mary Hanafin, what about the bathroom in the Bray DART station? I saw some disparaging remarks about a teacher at a local school written on a wall near the urinals once. That was public.

Here we have big labor and big government competing with one another to see who's the dumbest. It's only ironic because they're both supposed to be interested in the education that our children receive.
