At one point, Stossel stated that students at Abraham Lincoln High School "told me their teachers are so dull students fall asleep in class." Well, I guess that settles it -- "dull" teachers must be the reason why students fall asleep in class. Was Stossel surprised that teenagers would point fingers elsewhere for why they fall asleep in class?
Stossel also didn't bother to mention that the Lincoln High he chose to highlight is one of 11 "impact" high schools in New York State whose student populations are identified as having student violence/conduct problems.
The American Federation of Teachers dismantles Stossel's 20/20 hit-job in this well-written report, Stupid on ABC: The John Stossel Agenda.
