Why don't kids learn science at school?

Well, if this article is any indication, it's because too many teachers don't understand it, either.  When a Monterrey teacher asked for a private place in which to pump milk for her newborn, she allegedly was told to train her breasts not to make milk between the hours of 7am and 1pm.  Apparently the school manager never learned in health class that you really can't turn off any part of your body for the convenience of school administrators. 

Also of interest is the fact that the school has a "manager."  I personally don't remember ever having school "managers," but rather a principal in elementary school, a principal and an assistant principal in middle school, and a principal and three or so assistant principals in high school.  Can I suggest that if the school needs "managers" as well, they ought to simply hire a principal and assistant principals who know how to, you know, manage things?
