It is not burnout, it is poor administration control that have teachers leaving. One size education does not fit all, not teachers and not students. Dump standardized testing.

First things first. Until the school system sees fit to take control of discipline and enforces order in the schools teachers have little chance of educating students regardless of the teaching technique or quality of teachers.

Was the alternative school for students with disciplinary problems a workable solution that no one wanted to pay for? Of course there was a political price as well as the monetary cost that the council wished to avoid.

Get discipline in the schools and then teachers might have more opportunity to educate.

School is not a training ground for the military. Perhaps many do not belong in an organized team divided to groups by ages.

Steve Jobs was a trouble maker in school because they did not challenge him and he got bored. We have a huge problem with the very way we think of school. If children are inspired they are not discipline problems.

I agree...first problem is state testing. Those tests prove nothing.

The state and feds have no business in local schools.
