Doesn't the true professional value most the things worked hardest to get?<quoted text>
Ask any junior or senior at SHS whos' taking advanced Spanish about fellow peers they may be aware of who have felt compelled to drop this foreign language after 2 to 3 years of concerted effort. Without a doubt they'll tell you the reason many students are (perennially) forced to bail toward another elective is because of subpar performance of a certain SJHS teacher. Letters / e-mails have been sent by a number of frustrated parents around the district to the superintendent, who most certainly has to be acutely aware of the situation.
The fact of the matter is, if an educator has achieved tenure, teacher's union contracts prohibit public school district administrators / BOE's to doing not a lot more than wrist-slapping (i.e. Molly gate)........unless any offense is heightened to the seriousness of theft, etc.
While recognition of a job well done can be a good thing, because it encourages working harder; but getting too easily may develop a sense of entitlement, whether or not it is earned
by "hardly working."
"That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly."
