    Yes funny. But I find them so very sad, actually, and wonder where these schools are located.
    Then I re-read the one about being in the bed with "gramps" and Jeff Foxworthy's "You Might Be A Redneck If...." jumps to mind! Wow!

    As a retired teacher, I can say these are pretty accurate. It's not a matter of where the schools are located, but the economic and educational levels of the parents. If we move, most of us would do it on weekends and after work. Low income parents many times keep their kids home for a week to help. Also, if we have to go to the doctor we do it after school. Not true for many.

    Parents shouldn't be screaming for better education for their kids. Teachers are screaming for better help from home. When a five year old walks into kindergarten and does not recognize the letters of the alphabet or numbers, that child is behind already that is the fault of the parents, not the teachers!!

    I think it is sad to poke fun at this or that someone took it upon themselves to make this public. Perpetrating these 'stories' is a form of bullying.

    Do you really think it is okay to make fun of those with less education or perhaps just as much education, but in a different language?

    Do you think it is okay for a staff person at a school to release private correspondence between a parent and teacher?

    I live in an area where there is a marginalized community that is doing their best to improve the lives of their children. Many of the parents are lucky to have a grade 3 education themselves and were brutally abused in residential schools.

    If they took the time to write a note, is to be applauded not ridiculed.

    Perhaps you want to twice before sharing these 'stories'.

    Another retired teacher here. I first saw this list as least 30 years ago in Ohio. Every place has people less educated than others and this list tends to make stereotypes and prejudice rise. Lets work toward good instead.
