Teachers on the Prairies are perhaps the dumbest in the world

And Tod Maffin has proven it, once in Regina, and now in Calgary.
For a second time, teachers, unable to think critically, have paid real money to Tod in order to hear him expound on the most absurd notion ever put forth about the public education system.

What qualifies Tod Maffin to stand in front of accredited teachers and tell them they are doing everything wrong?
Why, he's a technology reporter for the CBC!

In Tod's own words:

"By government standards, I am, statistically speaking, a failure of the system," said Maffin, who grew frustrated by being unable to study what interested him in high school. He said he dropped out.

In his late teens, Maffin learned about the world on his own in local libraries and later graduated from university.

Someone who graduated from university is a "failure of the system"???????

Reporter Sarah McGinnis, of the Calgary Herald, laps it up without thinking. She's probably just starting out and is thrilled to see her name in print, regardless of whether anything makes sense.

If you prefer to remain stupid, Tod and the Calgary Herald are made for you.

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
