Kal Lis at The Displaced Plainsman snapped a picture of the poster below attached to a stall door in the men’s staff restroom in a Kansas City middle school.  I’m not sure what’s worse – that male teachers at this school need this type of motivation to implement Common Core or they’re juvenile enough to support this.

I will say I highly doubt it is officially sanctioned by the school.

There is much that probably could be said about this, but it won’t be by me.

You on the other hand, be sure to share your thoughts about this in the comments section below.


  1. Ok! Let me get this straight in my head. This is a poster posted in a school by the staff?

    1. Propaganda for who? For them, not really I doubt it was school-sanctioned. For us.. no I’m not making a huge deal out of this. Now if it came from the National Governors Association or Council of Chief State School Officers that would be a totally different story.

  2. I’m guessing a teacher (or student) put this up on their own, it’s apparently a meme after searching Google images for “hey teacher poster”.

    1. Or someone who just made it up. Then they can post it on the internet to rally the troops.

  3. Remember the Dayton, Ohio bus driver who’s Bible stopped two bullets? Turns out Rickey Wagoner missed the part about bearing false witness, because it was all a lie. Apparently lying for a good cause does keep the police from pressing charges.

    It seems like there are a lot of “miracles” out there that are simply made up.
