One wonders where all the money is coming from to implement all this new technology. With so much online, why do we need so many teachers?

Let's see.......they have upgraded the phone system so teachers don't have to talk to anyone they don't chose to. Teachers all have their own websites and were given training so they don't have to interact with students unless absolutely necessary. Now they say all this new technology will again make it easier for the teachers and staff.

They spend a lot of money to give teachers less and less to do while the contract negotiations go nowhere. Teachers and staff continue to demand more money for doing less.

For a district that keeps crying poor, they certainly don't stop the unnecessary spending!

And they don't even know how to use the technology they have correctly. I continue to hear excuses for why grades aren't posted, emails are not answered and voice messages ignored. Here is a thought, technology does not and is not meant to replace good old fashioned communication. If you truly cared for your students, you would answer the questions they ask and be able to provide answers to parents. After all it is your job regardless of the technology.
