The difference is that in most professions it doesn't take months of paid leave, and $100K in lawyers fees to get those bad apples out of the system.Of course there are bad apples and I bet every occupation here has bad apples.
It wouldn't be such a 'broad brush' situation if so many teachers, and blanket defenders didn't broadly say that it's all the parents, and students fault, that they fail as teachers.But too often people such as you use such a broad brush to paint teachers.
Not a painter. But leave it to libs to denigrate honest work.My daughter is a teacher and I know for a fact she puts in far more hours than you paint.
Not saying that. And I have teachers in my family tree as well.Is her job as hard as a bucker on a logging crew? No, and I doubt if your job is hard as one on a logging crew. But there are some tough jobs a teacher does that the logger doesn't have to deal with.
Admirable. Maybe she is one of the 'good ones'. No one said that they didn't exist.She has busted her ass to get her students to improve their education and just two months ago stepped in to rescue one young boy from an abusive and neglected living arrangement that nobody around him stood up.
On that we probably have more in agreement than disagreement. In raising our children, my wife and I were intimately involved with their education, but we did see a majority, that was shall we say less committed than we were.I think a problem with our young in education does come a lot from the home. Americans don't seem to value educating the mind as much as other cultures.
But we also saw many teachers that were less than committed also.
Well, sports, music, and yes even clubs like math/science are proven to form a more well rounded student. So, my suggestion to you is that if you don't have that within your education community then be proactive and start one yourself. You can get support from the national org.Look on any Saturday and you will see sports fields loaded with soccer, baseball, football, and basketball youth association games. Ever see a math/science club for youth gathering on a Saturday here in America? No, of course not.
That has more do with the cost of obtaining an MD in this country, combined with cost of malpractice insurance for entry level MD's, and payment for services not covering the cost of debt. Also, should Obamacare survive it will get worse. But that is off topic, and suitable for another thread.Check out the names of your physicians at your local clinic and see how many were raised here in our country.
