  1. This would be funny if it weren’t so sad.

    Out of a nation of 300 million people of which 3.1 million are public school teachers the DoE got 4,000 nominations. Not that surprising since this award seems to fall into the “bucket of warm spit” category. That’s appropriate given the position of the teacher in the education hierarchy and the value placed on education in the public education system.
