Fat Chance

We have nearly fifty schools struggling to meet federal guidelines. Hawaii teachers may be on the verge of a mass exodus. Substitute teachers are at once relied upon yet stymied.

One lawmaker’s bright idea? Go after overweight teachers, because skinny teachers will lead to skinny students.

Yeah, when everyone’s worried about keeping qualified teachers in the classroom, now’s the perfect time to annoy them with apalling stupidity.

State Rep. Rida Cabanilla said of her plan, “You cannot keep a kid to a certain standard that you yourself is not willing to keep,” Cabanilla said.

Well, I want smarter politicians. How about a brain scan for nominal activity as a qualification for public office?
