<quoted text>Wow... And this is the state of our education system-where our educators don't take any responsibility for these low "IQ's" (assuming a psychologist administered the IQ exam), a lacking vocabulary, and LOW TEST SCORES! Yes, it's the parents fault that their EDUCATIONAL needs are not being addressed properly by their teachers.
Be accountable for your part in these children's lives. Leave the rest to their parents.
I am accountable. I work very hard. My heart breaks for these kids. I watch their struggle and do everything humanly possible to make them successful. Don't judge me. U have no clue how hard it is to teach these kids. I love them and put my heart into my job. And for ur information.... Ur IQ is what it is. It will not variate much. Our education system and state mandated tests and not being able to ability group to teach these kids to their needs is failing us! But back to the parents.... I know first hand some parents avoid phone calls, conferences , and important meetings that make decisions for their Childs wellbeing and education. Wouldn't u show up and help ur teachers help ur child?? Oh wait. That's not ur job... Just mine.

I teach these welfare babies and to say that they take care of their children is a joke. They do not pay attention to their children. They do not give them life experience. And they do not teach them any type of vocabulary.(just simple conversation is lacking) Lots of low IQ's. And we wonder why test scores are low. HELLO. They can have kids (as many as they want) and get paid for them. And if u have a kids with serious behavior issues..... That gets ya a little bonus money.
And I think the point was missed here. Quit ignoring ur kids and exposing them to filth. U would not believe the things I hear! I love doing my job and don't mind stepping up to give them what is lacking in their life. I want to see all my kids succeed!!!

I think it's time for the teacher to do a bit of investigating then to figure out why these parents are not being more active in their child's wellbeing and education. Are there barriers these parents are facing? Are there language barriers? Transportation issues? Maybe they didn't receive the education to help their children with homework. Maybe the parents don't feel like the school is being responsive to the challenges these parents are facing.
To think that the only reason why parents don't "show up" and "help" is to ignore the possibility that parents are facing greater issues than the ones that only you want to see.
I'm not saying that it's your fault that parents are not being responsible for their part in their childrens' education; i'm saying that you need to have a better idea of the challenges parents are facing to even meet you halfway.

I do agree. Very legitimate point. Maybe I got a little emotional about this point. I do see a kid or small group who have terrible situations that are related to their parents. And the topic was welfare. So I connected the two. And what bothers me most is some welfare recipients get an extra amount added to their check for behavior problem kids. I just wish we rewarded the parents who are raising good kids. Just wishful thinking :)

Drug testing won't fix the welfare system; nothing can fix it. The problem lies in the idea "charity" enforced by law -- it's a self-contradiction. "Charity" enforced by law drives out real charity. It kills the love, and makes otherwise decent people turn mean.

As evidence, re-read this thread. Quite a few suggestions here for "What to do about those people." Are they coming from a place of love? Or resentment?

I don't mean to judge anyone feeling the resentment -- It's human nature. The problem is that the system judges human nature to be un-loving, and then tries to force us to love.(Which is impossible, of course.)
