Perry Said:

Why do people confuse Teachers with Missionaries?

We Answered:

Perhaps it is because of videos like this on the Internet.

I personally feel the media is overreacting making what is an innocent performance of schoolchildren into some big political hype. Imagine being these children, who probably contributed in writing the song, and wanted to perform this song and did so with all their hearts only to have it broadcasted on National TV while having it blasted and criticized. Never mind what the school has done, but what about the feelings of these children who probably don't even understand the controversy their performance has started.

Teachers may be iconic of Missionaries because of their ability to persuade children. Basically anyone can tell children something and they'll believe it. Children are gullible because they don't know better. Those that believe teachers are Missionaries, just don't know the simple fact that most teachers care for their students and want to teach them right. If teachers wanted to be Missionaries, they would have just become that.

Unfortunately because some parents believe this and don't want their children exposed to certain things, schools are limited to what they can teach of how it is taught. Some schools have cut out performances by students because of cultural inflictions. Many holidays cannot be celebrated because it may not be part of a student's belief.

Basically, teaching isn't as creative or free as it was before. It does limit what and how something can be taught. Most of the time it is the fun and creative stuff that's affected. Today, even teachers need to be politically correct.

Betty Said:

Help The Cast if Amontillado?

We Answered:

Three types of irony exist – verbal, dramatic, and situational. Verbal irony occurs when a character says one thing, but suggests another. Dramatic irony is when the words or actions of a oppose the actual situation. Frequently, characters are unaware of this irony; unusually only the readers can see its beauty. The third type involves predictions being broken. Unexpected occurrences, such as unhappy endings, often classify as situational irony. In "The Cask of Amontillado," Poe takes advantage of the power irony holds.
