I ended up earning a math degree.

(I still can't do long division and I'm not interested in trying. Even in 1985 it was obvious to me that I would never need to do that.)


My 3rd grade teacher (whom we suspected was mobbed up) forced us to do long division. Or else.

I'm definitely a little different but I'm not schizophrenic. Doesn't seem that he knows what the word means. Like people who say "fascist" as a general-purpose insult.

Test meant to screen teachers instead weeded out minorities

New York education officials are poised to scrap a test designed to measure the reading and writing skills of people trying to become teachers, in part because an outsized percentage of black and Hispanic candidates were failing it.
