"We know from our research that if they're asked, they will go into education," said Peter Hutchinson, president of the St. Paul-based Bush Foundation. "So today, we're asking." (re: recruitment of new teachers)
As a mentor teacher for many years, I am seeing good student teachers relieved that they didn't complete their final boarding of what they view to be the "Titanic".
With all the maligning of experienced teachers in the media lately, and being pushed into "lifeboats" of early retirement, why would anyone "worth-their-salt" consider a marriage proposal from someone who just divorced a second spouse, or be like the teenage girl who believes the teenage boy when he says he will respect her in the morning...?

Teachers do need to step up to the plate and be the professionals they need to be. Stop gossiping about each other. Stop being a door mat for the school districts and DOE.

The teachers, students and parents need to be the leaders of what goes on in education. These are the people who should be in the driver's seat and not the far removed administrators and especially not the DOE.
