Agree..MOST are not worth the salary that they make..however, there are a few truly exceptional teachers though that deserve every penny.

If you have a problem with to much home work,maybe it's time to have a conference with the teacher,posting on here wont help your cause,especialy when the above poster has called you out by name because you were bragging about posting it
We as parents also have a duty to teach our children and participte with there studies,maybe the problem lies with the parent not the teacher

The teachers aren't overpaid, they are underqualified. I remember the Frankfort education system well and I also remember how much it would have failed me had I not taken my own initiative to learn. I experienced some brilliant passionate teachers while I was in that school system BUT these brilliant passionate teachers are few and far between. The problem is that because the athletic department (in theory) generates so much revenue, "teachers" and staff are hired because of their potential to coach a winning team...and we see how well that works because obviously we constantly rank #1 in the state in most sports (oh wait, that's not us...unless you count some of the girls sports which of course so many of the town idiots do not because-oh what can girls do anyway-cretins)

Also, I know that nepotism is the hallmark of a small town's formalized system (be it legal, educational, administrative, etc.) I get it, I don't have a well known last name so I didn't even THINK about going in to education or anything like that but if you hire based on nepotism there is a SMALL chance (and by small I mean enormous) that perhaps you aren't getting the creme of the crop. Perhaps you are sacrificing quality in the name of ensuring that your family has decent jobs...if only the entire world worked that way.

I am severely disappointed in the Frankfort education system, something is terribly wrong when most of the town can't even spell properly or even know much about...anything. When I visit home I see a town full of people who are...stupid. There is no easy way to put it. That is why the area is so low income, that is why it is in the shape it is in. So few people are able to construct a decent life because they don't have the tools and while part of it can be blamed on their laziness and a lack of parents teaching their children to GIVE A DAMN and rise above their lowly intellectual and social class they were born into, the inspiration to move towards a better life begins with education...it begins in the classrooms when the teachers stimulate the students to think, to CARE, to feel-and if you're just trying to make sure the kids don't fail so you won't be penalized for your sub par job then shame on you. Shame on all of the unqualified teachers.

To the ones who are qualified...who do care and try to make that sytem better and improve lives daily...I commend them and I wish the administration would listen and actually give them opportunities to change things up-and I wish that students would be afforded more diversity in their learning...but that isn't going to be possible until we stop hiring jocks and the well connected.

This thread is hilarious. Do you really need clarification on why your kids are coming up short? Read through this topic one more time and it might become evident.......

I do agree with the too much homework part. My kid has 2-3 hrs of homework each night. Not sure what they do at school all day. Most of the time, I feel like the teacher..trying to reteach him this stupid math since the teacher doesn't explain it very well...grrr. At least he's on the honor roll & doing well otherwise.:)

WAKE UP PARENTS

You should be happy that your student has 2-3 hours of homework a day. While I agree that the education I received from FCHS is sub par compared to the education my university peers received from other areas of the state, I definitely had it a hell of a lot easier in high school (homework wise) than almost every other student I've met. 2-3 hours a day is NOTHING. Do you want your child to be prepared for college after graduation? Then you should appreciate that someone at FCHS is pushing your child academically so they can continue to learn and improve themselves outside of the mandatory hours they put in from 8-3. Or did you pause to think that maybe your child isn't exactly using his or her time as efficiently has he or she could during school hours? I can't think of a single classmate of mine during my four years at FCHS that wasn't guilty of this at some point including myself.

I'm not saying it is true in every situation, but I have a teacher, that I am very close to,who spends half of class time on many days just trying to corral the students into sitting still or not being disruptive long enough to teach the basics.

Homework REINFORCES what's taught in the classroom and provides valuable feedback to both teacher and student re: what's being understood. You don't honestly think kids learn simply by having material fed to them in school, I hope. The ability to interpret and apply it is actively developed through homework assignments. As your kids get older, they should be getting MORE homework, not less. Who do you think reviews, evaluates and grades it, and do you think teachers do all THEIR work during school hours? Think again!! Class prep takes time after school, when your kids' teachers might appreciate having some free time, too. Try teaching and get back to me about how easy it is to be an effective teacher.

Teachers should be paid more for the simple fact that they can't spank the spoiled little smartass snot noses and can't smack the teenage hooligans who didn't get sparked enough as little snot noses

Sounds like you aren't doing your job as a parent! You suggest home schooling,but like most you aren't capable of doing that.You complain because your "poor"kids have 2 or 3 hrs of homework now,what would they have if you homeschooled them? NO education at all! You might talk to the teacher instead of the people on topix and find out ways for your child to utilize their time better and get their work done in a timely fashion to suit you.Might ask that same teacher to give you some spelling lessons so you can help teach your kids to spell better than you do.Sorry your kids are taking up your time as a parent to help them,maybe you can ask the teacher to raise your kids too.You should be happy that they are able to get an education.Poor kids.

No kidding. Do you have any aspirations for them after high school, assuming they graduate? School IS work, and you don't get far as a dropout. You're not going to homeschool your kids if you're afraid of a little work, because homeschooling requires self-discipline on the parent's part as well as the kids'.

Kids also pick up on parental attitudes, so if you.want excellence from your kid, start working with his teacher, not against.

The very.BEST teachers I ever had were the ones with the most demanding homework. Piles and piles of it. The best thing we do for kids is foster a love of learning and strong curiosity.
