Who made up the twelve page lesson plans for teachers? It must have been someone who doesn't have to do lesson plans. When are the teachers going to teach?

I can guarantee it was someone who was in the classroom as short a time as possible, went straight into administration, and hasn't work in a classroom for years. Oh, wait, that's everyone in the central office. Make them teach one class every year and use their own BS paperwork. It would all change real quick.

It took me 5 hours to complete the 12 page lesson plans. I work very hard at school and then I have to go home and take care of my own children. Who ever came up with this must not have a family or a life. The teachers need to get together and show up at the next board meeting to voice our opinion. We are suppose to be teaching not doing all of this paperwork. I think we teachers should get a raise instead of some at the board office. I bet if they were teachers they would be complaining.

Why not just change schools or careers? There is no money in teaching anyway. You spend all that time and money going to college and teach for less than minimum wage when you count the hours spent in your profession, you can't live on what most of you make without a companion that has a big income to support you and the household. I totally discourage anyone from going into teaching, it is the most unappreciated job and when they do away with tenure and they will thats just around the corner now, you will have no job security and if you hang on long enough to retire you can't live off of what you draw. Kick it to the curb and when they can't find teachers the profession will once again become the appreciated job it once was.

I was a teacher and it was the best job I ever had. The hardest part was becoming a teacher, but it was easy after that. Stop complaining and be glad you have a great job.

I did not go to the board meeting Monday night but I was told that she said the teachers love the new lesson plan that it is perfect. How would she know? She sure did not ask the teachers at LEES and LWES. I was also told that she never did a lesson plan in her life and that she was only a teacher for 2 years and was a lousy one at that. She was always letting the students have free days so she could do her homework for her college classes. Why is it that Lawrence Co. is constantly putting incompetent people in charge? Could someone please explain this to the general public?

Ive taught in four different districts due to relocations. LC being one of them. Ive always loved and enjoyed my job, even though it was difficult...Until LC. SMH, you just dont get it. It isnt just a "little paper work" its impossible amounts to get done...impossible. No matter how hard you try, you will never ever get it done. There is a limit, and as a good teacher, I call a teaching job "good" when I can teach my students, and meet my responsibilities instead of spending hours filling out sheets of paper that no one looks at anyway, plus if you really are a good teacher, lesson plans get altered DAILY....because you adjust based on what your students need... with this idiocy you would need a personal assistant to keep up with the paper work

Wow you are exactly right. My husband is just about ready to wage war on all of the paper work I'm having to do. And the sad thing is it is in no way impacting my students' education. I told my husband what you said about needing a personal assistant and he totally agrees. I have tenure now but the teachers in this county have told me horror stories of how vindictive the present administration is. I really thought the leaders were nice and good people but I'm finding out I was wrong. I have been told that the only way it will prove is to vote against the present board members. I'm pretty sure my brother and his family will be voting for the Shannon man because his wife used to be a teacher. And my family will be voting for the Cassidy guy because he has kids in school. Does anyone know why the Robinson and See man run every time? I have been told that they do not have children and grandchildren in the system? So what are their motives? It sure is not education. They don't give a damn about the kids and they really don't give a damn about the teachers and staff. If they did I have a personal assistant.

The Robinson guy DOES have a child in school...junior in high school. He has a business and is a plumber M & M Plumbing.

My bad..you are talking about the lady Barb. No she doesn't have a child in school. But the other gentleman running against the Preston guy is Jerry "Robertson". Just my misunderstanding.

Paperwork is just as important as teaching students. Why, if teachers didn't have all that paperwork, students might get educated. Educated students would never grow up and vote for a board that would support this central office.

Twelve page lesson plans were made to just harass the teachers that they view as political enemies, or just don't like. Can anyone tell me of a top ten school that uses these lesson plans? How about a top 50 school?

I have never heard so much controversy over a damn lesson plan. Everyone knows a lesson plan is to be written by and used by the teacher. It sounds to me like this is just a way to beat the shit out of a lowly teacher. The teachers need to throw that damn template in the garbage and then go kick some administration ass. The best way to do that is vote out the current board members.
