    "Thank You For Your Service" For Our School Teachers

    We are always saying thanks to our cops, firefighters and military personnel but never to our teachers. Don't forget, without good teachers some of our good people would be in prisons. Pass it on.

    Teachers deserve thanks too.

    I lasted in the military for 20 years. But it is inconceivable to me that I could last more than a few days as a teacher. That job seems way too tough and demanding for me. But as a parent of two school-age boys, teachers have my utmost appreciation.

    A good paycheck sure would help a lot.
    And of course, our thanks.

    In Maryland, the Montgomery County Public Schools was perhaps the most advanced public school systems in the nation back in the 60's and 70's when I was a student. Seems like they've managed to maintain that position for the most part today.

    I disagree. Firstly, I do not think military, firefighters, emt, etc. get nearly enough recognition/credit for what they do--a lot of that has to do with the modern feminism and "radical" left-wing dominance in the "culture-wars". Second, the modern k-12 school system is really nothing to be proud of. Standards have gotten pathetically poor--in both k-12 and college.

    Hey, YOU get it!

    And even though they turn in bad work WAY THE **** too often they are always bitching about their compensation and how even though we spend gobs of money on the brain molding system nee education system they are not supported by the society. They even want parents to be hyper involved in high school....that is just ignorant.






    We need better teachers.

    This thread is thank you to our educators. Your rant belongs in another thread.

    If you think teachers are educating the young, then you are simply extremely ignorant of every given discipline. Talk to experts in any field--nobody will tell you that k-12 "education" makes any remote kind of sense.


    Edit: Comparing teachers to Firefighters is just unreal
