Rodeo Drive

You may not know this, but our school district hosts a rodeo. It’s scheduled for after Spring Break. The FFA has asked teachers who are interested in volunteering in a rodeo clown competition. To sway us to participate, we’ve been informed that all proceeds will go to charity. So let me get this straight; they want to put make-up on us in a situation that has a strong possibility involving a loose bull and the spectators have exchanged money for the event. Frankly, that doesn’t work for me. To me it sounds too akin to something like cock fighting.

What happened to teachers being revered? I mean what we do, educating the next generation, is important. That deserves something, right? Nowadays we’re seen as clowns. Literally!

Now, I’m not saying that I should have a statue erected for me. That’s too extreme. But so is the scenario of teachers wearing a red nose and chaps.

I hope the school district doesn’t have plans to do something for the 4th of July. The teachers might be asked to strap rockets to their backs!

All for charity, of course.
