I just believe that it is wrong and the Judge should be dis-barred :(

I live in NJ and I do remember hearing about this last year (although interestingly enough, not on Fox News) but I don't think it's such big news now. I think it was a bad ruling on the part of the first judge and I'm glad the appellate court reversed the decision.

It was a weird judgement.

During the last election, I didn't want a bunch of robo calls. I called up the state Democratic party and got hold of a real person. I informed them that I was on the do not call list for a reason...and that if I got robo calls from any candidate, that was a deal breaker for me and I simply would not vote for them. They took me off the list and I didn't get a single call. So far, I haven't gotten a call this year...I wonder if it would work in your state.

It sounded to me like perhaps the judge wasn't looking at it as rape/possible rape (I can't remember exactly what I read) because the intent wasn't there...that the guy was basing his behavior with his wife on his beliefs and really didn't think he was raping her. Rape is rape, though, and the judge should have given her a restraining order...on top of educating the guy on what is legal and illegal sexual behavior.

"how you try to make a "bad teacher" connection as a personal insult."



Oh i didn't realize you were a teacher!! What grade do you teach and what subject? Do you find it frustrating some days with all the NCLB and all that? Do you see a lot of your coworkers more teaching to the test because of NCLB? For the sake of my children, I hope that is something that gets revamped real soon.

I taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I'm not currently teaching in a school.

When I was in the classroom? Absolutely.

It's more spending time teaching test taking skills...lots and lots of time teaching test taking skills. There's simply not enough time to hit everything that will be on the test, but that's exactly what teachers have to deal with...so everything is quick and just surface...no in-depth learning of anything going on.

It's the reason why I will never go back into the classroom as a teacher.

I agree. Who knows why he was thinking the way he was.

<teacher.>>













Never say never. You could always try an 'alternative' type of school. I teach preschool at a Reggio Emilia inspired school and I love it. It's very much child-directed. For instance, one day we found a grasshopper outside of our classroom. We caught it and studied it and the children were so interested in it that it led to us going online to research what grasshoppers ate, etc. That of course led to a more in-depth lesson on insects. One day, after a night of rain,

That kind of sounds like the un-schooling learning that some Homeschool parents use with there kids. I think its great, cause of the hands on.
