The flesh of the land-tortoise is employed for fumigations. Pliny the Elder (tr. Bostock & Riley)
After reading the February 20 post, you now understand that will take a very powerful compound to fumigate Most Holy Trinity (MHT) Clerical Vocational Program to rid it of rapidly fatal plague. Nothing less than the complete removal of its staff and administration is required. The following brief anecdote about the rector’s clone, who is also the vice rector, will prove that no one in that pest house has the foggiest notion about good teaching. To a man, they are less than amateurs, and we have come to know them by their spoiled fruits.
An industrious seminarian teaching in the “parish” school attached to MHT used to prepare outlines and study guides for the children to facilitate their mastery of the subject material. When the clone learned of this, he reprimanded the seminarian, severely chiding him that he was making it “too easy” for the students. Since the seminarian didn’t want to be expelled, he complied with the clone’s wrongheaded demand.
A teacher’s job is to help his students learn. He does what is necessary to assure mastery. Every real teacher knows that easing the task of learning does not mean making it easy on the student. It is clear that the clone is an incompetent educator who embraces the culture of punishment characteristic of MHT’s rector and disturbed staff. If this misguided priest just stayed in his little school with its miniscule enrollment, the Reader wouldn’t comment. However, given that he is also closely associated with the MHT leadership, we completely understand how the clerical vocational school produces the nincompoops we have exposed.
