You can take the teacher out of the classroom but …

Health Minister Theresa Oswald, a former high school teacher, recently started asking reporters to raise their hands in order to ask questions at H1N1 press conferences.

While this isn’t in the same ballpark as Prime Minister Harper asking reporters to submit their names or even Premier McGuinty asking reporters to stand back 5 feet during scrums, it did seem a bit condescending to reporters.

After a bit of grumbling from the press gallery, the old system of shouting out questions was returned.
