    i've described several times how our education majors are designed around the assumption of mediocre students - how our education masters programs are ridiculously easy, and how unfortunately our pay system is designed to reward seniority rather than quality and designed to attract risk-aversion rather than a desire to perform.

    It's far from the "only" issue in education. But it is a problem, and it's one that we should start fixing by tying compensation to achievement.

    Maybe it's the school district I'm in - or my state - who knows . . . but what you detailed isn't at all what my friends have to say about their decision to pursue a path as a teacher at all. It wasn't their 'alternative' choice to anything - maybe for a few it could be. But not a single teacher I know has those issues.

    Sounds like you're looking back - and your friends are looking back - which is far different than how you claim they're suppose to be looking forward.

    So - why did YOU choose to become a teacher? Don't tell me it's because your career as a mathetmatician didn't pan out
    Okay, so you're gonna try to put this all on me now? Way to fight fair. *slow clap* And way to dodge practically every point I have thrown at you.

    For your information, my decision to go into education was a choice. I easily had the grades to pursue a career in higher-level math. Which, coincidentally, I am doing right now. I got sick and tired of dealing with people like you and, as a reward for it, being paid a lot less than some entry-level math and engineering jobs. But judging by your flippant post, you STILL haven't digested post #65 yet, which pretty much explains all of this.

    And since you want to make this all about personal experiences, what are YOUR credentials? How much classroom experience do YOU have? How much time served as a teacher, parapro, or classroom assistant do YOU have?

    The thing is, cpwill, one doesn't need to know integral calculus to effectively teach middle school math. But one does have to have an ENORMOUS amount of patience, understanding, and political savvy (yes, teachers need that) that someone working at a 9-to-5 desk job would typically only need in short bursts. Sitting in a college classroom, regardless of content delivered, simply cannot teach that.

    I think we may be in agreement that education schools need to be overhauled. The only real question is how.
