     Have you heard about the next planned Survivor show?

         Three businessmen and three businesswomen will be dropped in an
  elementary school classroom for 6 weeks. Each business person will be
  provided with a copy of their school district's curriculum, and a class
  of 28 students.

         Each class will have five learning-disabled children, three with
  A.D.D., one gifted child, and two who speak limited English. Three will
  be labeled as severe behavior problems.

         Each business person must complete lesson plans at least 3 days in
  advance with annotations for curriculum objectives and modify, organize,
  or create materials accordingly. They will be required to teach
  students, handle misconduct, implement technology, document attendance,
  write referrals, correct homework, make bulletin boards, compute grades,
  complete report cards, document benchmarks, communicate with parents, and
  arrange parent conferences.

         They must also supervise recess and monitor the hallways. In
  addition, they will complete drills for fire, tornadoes, or shooting

         They must attend workshops, (100 hours), faculty meetings, union
  meetings, and curriculum development meetings. They must also tutor those
  students who are behind and strive to get their 2 non-English speaking
  children proficient enough to take the Terra Nova and ELA tests. If they
  are sick or having a bad day they must not let it show.

         Each day they must incorporate reading, writing, math, science, and
  social studies into the program. They must maintain discipline and
  provide an educationally stimulating environment at all times.

         The business people will only have access to the golf course on the
  weekends, but on their new salary they will not be able to afford it
  anyway. There will be no access to vendors who want to take them out to
  lunch, and lunch will be limited to 40 minutes.

         On days when they do not have recess duty, the business people will
  be permitted to use the staff restroom as long as another survival
  candidate is supervising their class.

         They will be provided with three 40-minute planning periods per
  week while their students are at specials. If the copier is operable,
  they may make copies of necessary materials at this time.

         The business people must continually advance their education on
  their own time and pay for this advanced training themselves. This can be
  accomplished by moonlighting at a second job or marrying someone with

  The winner will be allowed to return to his or her job.
