I saw a comment that, COMPLETELY coincidentally, and OF COURSE this can't have anything to do with it -- the teacher is currently in a union contact negotiation with the administration.

But of course the district wouldn't be influenced by that, would they?

"One of the most important lessons kids learn in public schools is that school administrators are usually autocratic imbeciles."

This is good preparation for life, as the students will later find that many supervisors at work are autocratic imbeciles.

I have heard that major law schools have a professor who occasionally goes batshit insane and screams at a student for no reason, to prepare them for dealing with judges.

This seems like an excellent idea. One thing I have observed to be generally true is that courses of study that purport to prepare one for employment in a particular field often do not even mention some of the common pitfalls to the the young practitioner. Like for instance, people who scream at one. Just cause they can.
