Tennessee Bill: Penalize teachers, lobbyists for defaulting on student loans

Teachers and lobbyists who default on student loans could lose the right to practice their professions…

House Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh, D-Ripley, said the bill sends the wrong message to teachers already facing ample problems. It means, he said, “You would be able to take a teacher out of a classroom because he or she, because of tough times, has become delinquent on a student loan.”

WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS STATE? No wonder why zero of my students want to be teachers when they grow up.

As with the prior iteration of your site, I would forget my four-digit pin as often as I would forget to conduct a breast self-exam. Thus, I appreciate that your site now allows a password that is not government-issued.

I noticed, however, that your site now offers an array of new password hint questions. NAME OF YOUR FIRST PET is no longer a menu item, so I elected to check the box next to NAME OF FIRSTPERSON EVER KISSED.

At first I could not understand the relationship between teenage pecks and student loans, but then I realized that both had a great deal to do with miscalculation.
