Actually I have known a LOT of GOOD teachers and still do. No one is saying that there is no work involved just saying that a lot teachers are not doing the job they should be with the kids. Look at the drop out rates, look at the home school enrollments... do you seriously believe the numbers would be so high if we had more "GOOD" teachers?

Check the thread, ma'am. The guy did, indeed, say the there was 'no work' involved in teaching. As for the drop out rates...it has a LOT more to do with the area of the state in which we live and the prevalent mindset that living off of the government is not only acceptable but preferable. Raise your children to think otherwise and they will understand and believe in the importance of education...and will want to rise above the 'bad' teaching.

Teachers are paid based on tenure and not their ability. Short of harming a child once a teacher receives tenure its a permanent contract for a job for life.

aint it the truth.

They shouldn't have to rise above the "bad" teaching... The "bad" teaching IS the problem, and it should be solved first... The central solution for that would be to get government out of the education business, and more public scrutiny into the spending of local boards... Inept teachers create more inept teachers... That is the natural progression of things... Till they are held to a higher standard there will be no change for the better... It will only continue to regress... This is part of the dumbing down of America... The rules changed in the seventies... Because little Johnny couldn't keep up and little Susy was an excellent student a balance had to be achieved... Instead of trying to make Johnny smarter they found it was easier to make Susy dumber, and that is government education in action... It is natural in a despotic society to train not thinkers and solvers but workers... That is where we are headed...

I never said I disagreed that there were 'bad' teachers in the education system. There are. It is a fact. There are 'bad' employees in every facet of the work force. What I did say that you misconstrued was in response to the 'drop out' issue...look...we live in Harlan...if you look at the drop out issue you will find those who believe education is not important. Offspring are taught that they can do better in the world living off of some sort of government subsidy. It is a fact.
