It's a sad day when budget cuts come down to Teachers and Assistants. This translates into less classrooms per grade level and larger class sizes. Add in the new Common Core Curriculum and NC Standards along with no budget for new textbooks....now you have a complete mess at the children's expense. What kind of leaders and professionals do you think will come of this generation? Now, do people understand why parents are looking for alternative education, ie homeschooling, private school and charter schools?

Yes, you are correct, the Education System is run by people who don't have a clue on what it takes to teach a child these days. Things are not what they used to be when these people were in school.
Teaching is not a business, it is an art. You will not have talented people going into teaching because there are not talented people running the system.

the point is that young people will not want to go into teaching. Low pay, large classes, test driven curriculum, not enough books, and a materials budget that is funded by BBQ. The system has too many top administrators, who have not worked in a classroom, making poor decisions. If there are other opportunities with better pay and less stress, then who 'will' go into teaching? Not our best and brightest. How many happy teachers do you know? How many teachers do you know that want to leave teaching? I know two people who did their student teaching and then decided not to teach. Probably a smart move.
