Because the TAX PAYERS are paying for the education. If you want your precious little children to receive an excellent education. Home school with hired teachers or send them to an expensive private school.

Whammer couldn't pass the 4th grade level standards.

But then again Kirtland elected a high school dropout to represent them on the local school board. Great example he is.

The district has spent enough money on his travel for "training" over the past twenty years they could have paid for two full ride scholarships each year for CCSD students during that time.

All the crappy teachers might have to do something. The education system is supposed to about EDUCATION! They should spend less time complaining and more time teaching.

They are disrespected by the likes of you, don't get parental support, work in a state where the education head is a de facto lobbyist for skimming limited public money into privatization schemes, interference from administrators and political hacks on school board and the perennial funding problem - and you want the people doing the tough job to just shut up.

Trust me, teachers want to teach more than dealing with the rest of the BS.

After seeing my child's "report card" where the students are evaluated against the rest of the country at a 75 percentile. That means that a 75 is average is now a 100!. That's a damn D in my book! Your right, but what's really happening is that that the LIV parents are buying into this sham that their kid who is getting a 75 is actually doing well. It's dumbing down the LIV parents! Ask at the next PTC what this percentile is all about.

You see yourself as a spokesperson?

You have a following? Where?

Sorry,,I got the information by examining my child's report card and then asking questions of the teacher. Truth is your child's progress is based on how they perform against established national averages and then just at an 75 percentile. So if you think that your kid is really doing well because he or she is "right where they should be" based on the new common core grading system then they are really just getting a D.
