IKEA Discontinues Beloved Shelf, Prompts Internet Fury

IKEA Discontinues Beloved Shelf, Prompts Internet Fury

“I was thinking the same thing. I've had two of these shelves for about 5 years. They have survived hundreds of books and records, as well as several moves. Best $60 I have ever spend on bookshelves.”

“No Sean...like I told Stew...the locking system which consists of those bolts and round locking stations are cheap. I have bought and put together many Ikea items and the shelf system was one of the easiest. I was talking about the quality of parts. Pay for what you get.”

“Just ignore everything that Diane Ravitch wrote, spoke, or believed prior to 2002. Most of her life she was a "regressive", and she did a lot of damage. I try not to lump her in with progressive educator scholars because of her past support of charter schools and high stakes testing.”

“I know several people who began life as raving conservatives who, over time, felt that such a political philosophy was ultimately damaging to human dignity. Now they are liberal and, in one case, actively progressive.

Likewise I know several people who've gone in exactly the opposite direction.

Your post seems to indicate that if people change, their new outlook holds no validity. They can have nothing of merit to say on a given topic because they once spoke differently.

That seems neither practical nor realistic to me.”

“She saw the light. She realized the education Rhee-form was bad for our kids and bad for teachers. Sometimes former adversaries make the best allies. I'd rather side with her than with Rupert Murdock and Neil Bush. ”

“Worldwide, it is probably pretty comparable. Out of the top 10 highest paid athletes, 5 are European (soccer and tennis).
You are correct, teachers are professionals and should be treated as such. Your comparison between teachers and professional athletes is a bit of a stretch though, because you ignore one of the primary tenants of determining wage; the scarcity of labor that is able to compete at a professional level.Teaching is a demanding profession. Playing a professional sport is even harder, and professional athletes generate a tremendous amount of capital (ticket sales, merchandise, TV, etc.) primarily through their playing a sport (labor). Sure, they might be dribbling a ball down a court, or hitting a ball with a bat, but very few people can compete on that level.”

“Yea I understand what you are saying, pro sports generate a lot of money, big profits and big paychecks for talent. Poor schools, teachers and poor education also end up with a hidden high cost as well, something that follows the undereducated throughout life. And it kinda creates a high public cost along with it. As in too many problems in this country are the result of ignorance and lack of education, many of our ills could be cured with more support for better overall education.”

“It isn't just the US that is obsessed with sports, that is a world wide phenomenon.”

angusmciver on Dec 3, 2013 at 09:19:48

“Yea, but what does America pay our players and coaches and team owners and how does that compare worldwide? I do know we have some good schools but we also have some really bad schools, and teacher pay? It is not much of a high priority. There is a lot of resistance to value teachers through decent pay. But get a guy that can dribble a ball and that is a different story.”
