So he is using "special interests" people as his excuse because he did not have answers for us. This is a cowards way out and it shows that he doesn't know what the hell he is talking about. Again someone who has never spent a day teaching in a classroom has no right to try to tell districts how it should be done. There is a difference from being in the trenches and being in the administrative offices. Oh and I am a parent not a teacher and it upsets me that they think we are stupid.

THe best administrators were excellent teachers as well.

Not true. A blanket statement like this demonstrates that you believe in stereotypes.
Thanks to union rules, teachers who can't teach effectively don't get fired, they get promoted! No surprise the primary and secondary education systems in the USA are phuccckeed! The same thing happens at the collegiate level too, so don't kid yourselves.
Phhuuuck up, move up. Always the case in government (self) service.
And you call yourself an Educator? HA!

and then there are the uneducated...like you. You're probably on disability because you are obese.

And then there are the ignorant---like yourself. You're probably one of those selfish government workers who think that 'they know it all' yet in reality, they know very little.
Stop feeding from the government trough. Try getting a private sector job that generates profit for yourself and shareholders, instead of being a constant drain on taxpayer public coffers!
