When you were in high school, did you go over Roman Mythology? How long did the lesson last, and do you think the teacher did a good job? I really feel ripped off, when it comes to what I learned in high school. I had been reading Roman mythology, since I was in third grade. Yes, I was an advanced reader, and read everything I could get my hands on. Anyway, I was excited about the upcoming Roman mythology lesson, and all the insightful discussions that might happen. The day comes, and my teacher starts to read us some mythology. Then she states, that she does not understand this stuff, and we are going to skip it. WHAT!!!! I was so heartbroken! How in the world does a teacher not understand Roman mythology? People wonder why American children are not so smart, maybe it is because of crappy teachers! No offense to any teachers, because there are loads of awesome teachers out there.
