    as he just alluded to wanting to do tomorrow. He'd last maybe 3 minutes.

    •  And why the "inner city"? (0+ / 0-)

      When I heard him say that, I rolled my eyes. Why do people like Timmy think that "inner city" schools need their personal assistance?  I think nearly any public school would welcome volunteers.

      Rather go there and teach, I'd rather he use his position to focus on educational issues in general.

      •  Exactly... (0+ / 0-)

        it was a very condescending statement. Believe me, I teach in pretty "white-bread suburbia" but whenever these guys feel they can "descend from on-high" and "teach" the great unwashed I roll my eyes as well.
