A good teacher

It isn’t often I speak highly of a teachers, but I have to comment on this upstanding example of teaching.

Of course some wowser has found their little pool of outrage and complained.

An Idaho biology teacher is facing possible disciplinary action after killing and skinning a rabbit in class to show students where their food comes from.

Nampa School District spokeswoman Allison Westfall says the teacher killed the rabbit in front of 16 students by snapping its neck on Nov. 6 at Columbia High School.

The rabbit was then skinned and cut up in front of the 10th graders.

Westfall says the demonstration isn’t part of the biology curriculum.

She says students who didn’t want to view the lesson were allowed to leave ahead of time.

The teacher’s name hasn’t been released.

At least in the US someone will tell the school board to piss off.

I wonder if the teacher cooked it up for the kids…like this:

  1. Bone out rabbit
  2. Roast bones and boil them to make a stock
  3. Seal the meat in a hot frying pan
  4. Add to the stock with whatever veggies you have handy, preferably carrots, peas, mushrooms, celery
  5. Cook at a low heat for about 3 hours with salt, pepper and herbs to taste
  6. Thicken with cornflour if desired
  7. Let cool, serve the next day as the stew will mature nicely and taste a lot better as well as be a lot more tender double cooked
