Even if I had four generations of doctors in my family, unless I had personal experience being a doctor, I wouldn't presume to know anything about what it's like being a doctor or claim to know the nuances of working in the medical profession.
Same with you and your immediate family of educators.
However, you are presumptuous enough to tell a former teacher that you know more than they do about being a teacher and all of the nuances of working in the teaching profession when you've never experienced it personally and have no first-hand knowledge.
And you are perfectly cut out to be arrogant and obnoxious. Which is very sad and very bad.
And yet, you claim to know so much about other things son!

As I said to another forgetful poster recently___narcissists and sociopaths are so caught up in themselves and what "they" have to say that they don't consider what others are saying. Just in my immediate family I can count over 100 years of school teaching administrating experience in four different states.
You weren't cut out for teaching__too bad so sad.
Knew there was something else I wanted to add...

Your immediate family of administrators are the problem. Most administrators are whipped into submission by the unions and create an environment of teachers having to walk on eggshells.

There are far too many wanna be administrators fighting for the golden opportunity to keep a seat warm and wait for a cushy retirement.

Like too many cooks in the kitchen, administrators spoil the broth.

Gallup on Obama approval:

The Obama administration insists nobody will lose coverage as a result of cancellation notices going out to millions of people. At least 3.5 million Americans have been issued cancellations, but the exact number is unclear. Associated Press checks find that data is unavailable in a half the states.

Speaking in Boston's historic Faneuil Hall this past week, Obama said the problem is limited to fewer than 5 percent of Americans "who've got cut-rate plans that don't offer real financial protection in the event of a serious illness or an accident."

But in a country of more than 300 million, 5 percent is a big number about 15 million people.

It's impossible to go back to the days of the Founding Fathers. Just respecting their genius and amazing foresight by implementing this great experiment would suffice.

They weren't perfect and we aren't perfect. But people all over the world emulate the concept of democracy and a system of government by the people and for the people.

Until progressive liberalism began eroding its very foundation in the same country where it all began.

This article claims those numbers projected (long-term} to be 16 to 17 million.

DemoKKKrat Congressman on welfare...

During a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on Obamacare on Wednesday, Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that he thinks Obamacare will save him money by subsidizing an insurance policy for his 33-year-old son.

Under Obamacare, Americans making less than 400 percent of the poverty level can get their health insurance subsidized by the taxpayers if they buy a government-approved plan in the government-run exchange.

Taxpayers pay Doyle an annual salary of $174,000 for serving in Congress.

However, Doyle told Sebelius he "thinks" his wife is now paying his "self-employed" 33-year-old son's health insurance premium, and after pushing his son to look into what was available on the government exchange discovered that he could get a plan for half the price.

One of my four kids is self-employed. Hes 33 years old. Hes paying about $140 a month right now for a Blue Cross plan. Hes eligible for a subsidy. We browse that site. Hes going to be able to get coverage for about half of what hes paying right now, and thats good news for us, because I think my wife is paying his premium, so I think were going to save the money, Doyle said.

Guess 15 million isn't that big a deal. Of course, by all indications, that number will continue to grow.
