    The teacher isnt a student advocate. They are now a teacher advocate. Thats fine-just dont pretend otherwise.

    The system has set itself up to punish teachers not to advocate for students that have learning problems. That is not the way to create a good environment for learning for either teacher or student.

    And teachers have fought against the system being set up this way.

    I hear you but you offer no alternatives. Teachers oppose testing. They oppose private school/vouchers/home schooling. They always ask for more funding but state the problems are beyond their control.

    I think we both recognize it does not work. Whats your suggestion?

    This thread has as little to do with your issues with teachers as it does with your issues with unions.

    Please stop trying to derail the thread

    I disagree-these are the factors impacting public education.

    Not to have corporate control of schools is a good start.

    Right. This doesn't do much to dispell those leftist tendencies teachers are known for.

    What exactly is that suppose to mean? High stake testing is a corporate edict. That set up has not made for a constructive environment for learning. It doesn't address how students learn at different rates and have different abilities. Rather, it addresses children as some kind of commodity that should perform in standard unison. It's pitiful.
