You can say what you want in a post, but I still beleive that you would hire illegally if your livlihood came down to that being the only option. Being called an asshole is an honor, especially coming from a Republican. It's not the first time, and will not be the last. I will wear it like a crown. I relish more opportunities.
Do you really think human resources will tell a black they were hired solely to meet affirmative action requirements?

And BTW, interest rates are low, the economy is growing after the republican majority.
Interest rates are currently low because of the govt's manipulation of inflation. If we calculated the numbers in the same fashion as we did in the 70's, Obama would make Carter look like a saint. The inflation bubble is going to burst just as the housing bubble did but they'll probably be a Republican in the White House by then for you to blame it on also.
The economy is growing is more manipulation of the numbers. Because unemployment numbers are dropping doesn't mean the economy is growing, it means the benefits are expiring for those that have been unemployed for to long.
You have got to stop watching MSNBC, they're warping your mind.

Teachers, teachers,, bla, bla . You have never had contact with the army of administrative and support personnel in US schools. For every 39 teachers ACTUALLY teaching students in the USA, there are 61 administrative and support personnel. Guess why the per student costs are so high here.
In a rowing race between Japan and the US, the Japanese had 19 rowing and one supervisor and won the race. The US had 19 supervisors and one rowing. After the loss, republikans formed a committee to review the performance of the rower. Hiring more whipmasters is the only performance plan republikans can conceive.

Japan spends far less per student than us, they have on avg over 60 students per class, they preach education is privilege not a right, they don't coddle their students, it's sink or swim and they out perform us year after year! Maybe it's because they're actually teaching education and not an agenda.

Yes, you're right. They told me that at the interview. They said my 3.8 College GPA was just too low for their standards of hiring, so they had to hire me on the government quota system.

1.5 administrators per teacher is excessive I agree but it's not the only problem. The thinking of it's a right to an education, the ideology behind the teaching, it's the "everyone is a winner" mentality while removing the competition aspect that has crippled our schools as well as our country, the thinking that more money solves all of our problems, and the teachers first, students second attitude that has destroyed our schools. We need trim the fat by cutting administration, make families realize that education is a privilege and if you're not on board you get left behind, remove the hidden ideologies and agendas from schools, offer vouchers for private education for those who can't afford it, quit wasting the taxpayers money for a fat administration and unqualified teachers who shouldn't be teaching but are protected by the unions while improving compensation for those teachers that are excelling, bring back competition so that the cream rises to the top which inspires those who are lacking to try harder, and put the students first, ahead of administration, teachers, agendas, tenures, etc...!
Typical liberal, attack the opposition instead of suggesting solutions.

You are begining to understand the problem. It isn't teachers first, its administration first. I agree that the focus should be on students. Instead, it is on forcing teachers to jump through administrative hoops and obstacles presented by the $100,000 + per year army of administrators. Superintendents,assistant superintendents, associate superintendents, 501 coordinators, purchasing agents, drop out prevention councelors, guidance counselors, curriculum coordinators, testing coordinators, principals, assistant principals, coaches, assistant coaches, computer supervisors, psychologist, nurses,--the list goes on and on. Add in the incessant reorganization and so called reform that makes it appear that administrators are essential while producing nothing more than inefficiency, confusion and demoralization. Everything that has failed in California will be tried in North Carolina around 10 years after it failed in Ca.
The accomplishments of the teaachers is in spite of the administration rather than because of them.

Also, here is no teachers union in North Carolina. Collective barganing for NC state employees is illegal.

So a juvenile in NC is arrested , tried and convicted for armed robery and other crimes.. Likely as not, the judge will sentence him to return to school and "be good" as part of his probation. Yes, there are problems in our schools. Only very rarely does the problem lie with a teacher. That republikan noise machine is making you blind to real problems.

You two guys,TSF and PRO....may be on opposite sides of the fence but you've both hit on the problems associated with education in America.This"everyone is a winner"stuff literally makes me sick when I think of how competitive foreign students are compared to ours these days.Japanese, Chinese, Pakistani, and Indian kids compete with each other like crazy, they know you have to EARN the sobriquet of"winner"!
