    I think we can all agree that our education system needs fixing. What do you think?
    In answer to the poll question...

    Yes with caveats.

    Yes, if you pay teachers more, those interested in the position will probably be better.
    The caveats being that you must correspondingly increase the requirements for a teacher, and by that I do NOT mean academic requirements. They could have a doctorate in history, but they could still be a POS who has no business teaching children anything.

    But I think the real issue with public schools (and I assume here that you are referring to public schools) is that both the school environment, and more importantly, the home environments of the individual children, are in many cases not helpful to learning, and in some cases negatively affect such.

    That cannot be addressed by spending more on schools. It requires some kind of vast change in the very fabric of America, or at least in the places where the home environment is an overall negative for learning.


    I think...

    I've worked in schools as a TA and sub often putting in more effort and care than their actual teachers. I worked in urban poor and rural poor schools. Rural kids did much better because they behave better and their parents are more involved. My brightest students were from the city schools but they were an extreme few, and dealt with severe bullying, fights, gangs. I dealt with (btw this was elementary school) kids trying to stab me, kids with parents in gangs, parents hating me cuz I'm White, etc.

    Both districts btw are non-union.


    Nobody holds the parents accountable. I worked also subbing in a rich burb school where parents made excuses for their kids.
