Movies

Let's say it's an early dismissal day or there's a substitute. Know what that means? Movies!

My high school owned a 16mm print of Mutiny on the Bounty (with Clark Gable and Charles Laughton) that I must have seen ten times.

Here are some that I could watch over and over.

Has anyone made other clips? These are fabulous.

I love the "why teacher merit pay is tricky" one. The fact is, people just don't get statistics - the "monty hall" problem illustrates that very well - and the idea that teachers, OUR teachers, should be judged on the basis of idiotic, non-reality-based "statistics" (Ugh. I AM a statistician, and the proposed policies just set my professional statistical teeth on edge!) is just absurd. Nobody could be stupid enough to fall for this. Could they?

Oh, and did you know that Crosscut, where Dick Lilly writes pro-deform articles, is funded by the Gates Foundation???? Last Donation: $400,000 - details coming to you in a "follow the money diagram" soon...
