I agree!! Also if the government would cut off the nursing supply(food stamps, free cell phone, free land line) to people that truely don't need it then maybe we would have money and also the people that really needed it would be able to get it!

First of all if Obama and the rest of the idiots in government would hold the parents and the students accountable instead of the teachers then maybe teachers would not be quitting left and right! I am a teacher and I have no problem being held accountable for the things that I am 100% responsible for like my lesson plans, teaching, classroom management, etc.!!! It all goes back to HOME TRAINING so it is time that people quit dogging teachers and take a look in the mirror!!!! We are setting up the kids for failure because in the real world there are no accommodations for a kid that is outright lazy...well yes there is...he can live off the government!!! Having a true disability and pretending to have one are two different things!!!! Everybody wants to b treated equal but not work as hard as the person next door!! This country is going to shit and will continue to go to shit until our government changes!!!! I would love for Obama or Jindal to switch jobs with me for two months, salary included, so I can implement changes every other day and expect more and more from them and not the students while I am living on their income, eating organic food but siding with Monsanto against labeling GMO food!!!! Teachers can't even TEACH anymore with all the dam paperwork we have to do!!!!!!! One last thing, for those of you that think teachers are garbage and we don't deserve shit, I would love for you to walk in my shoes for just one month!
You're overpaid. Teachers don't need to be making more than 35k.

Have we EVER been in such a MESS with the teachers
and how inept they are in the history of this
country? The unions have allowed them to get
BIG wages, retirement and can't
even get children
to pass a test or
graduate. Is this what this country needs when
other countries are just waiting for these students
to run our country? Does it even give you democrates any concern? What is happening to the
downgradeing of this nation? YOU, have hired a man that has changed everything 'till we hardly
know what we can expect with 4 more years of him.
I'm so upset with our school system and what our
children will become, I'm not able to express
what I would and should discuss....Its not a happy
carefree country when you see what is happening
to the next generation... When will our president
began to realize he is killing us...When you
give 4 more yrs??....Please tell me, you care more
than that, I'm begging you....Does your kids
deserve a good life when you and this president
ARE GONE? Careing and change is something your
lacking????

Wasn't the stimulus money he signed soon as he took office supposed to go for teachers, police, firemen etc...?
Here in Southern cal. Lynwood schools were took over by the government for lack of money.
LAUSD is about to go bankrupt as well. All other local school districts are cutting back so much that there is no paper for kids to write on. This was supposed to be prevented under Obama's stimulus money.
Now he is blaming the repubs because they won't pass the jobs bill??? Another how many billions?
I do know who received large sums of the money. It wasn't the schools.
Local unions did. Glaziers union in Los Angeles received nearly 200k
So what did they do? The officers all got sizable raises. They gave away nearly 100k in raffle prizes to the workers.(they cried there is no money up until the stimulus was signed. And they had over 65% of the workers off work). So where did the money come from?
The union reps here in Cali push the workers to vote dems. They say that the repubs made Cali a right to work state. But they do not tell them is that the dems have been in control of cali for over 37 years. Since then they have one of the highest number of people on welfare. More illegal aliens than natives on it now.
The governor wants to raise even more money in taxes to pay for it. He also signed under executive order the dream act for illegal aliens to receive money to go to college. Yet natives struggle to get any grants if they do.
Now Nobama's plans have failed miserably. He needs to be voted out and allow someone who knows how to create business growth take over. Then maybe we can save the teacher jobs

Lay them all off. They make way too much money and then still complain. 70,000 just to babysit kids all day? And they still complain? Teachers shouldn't make more than 35k.

I agree. they make too much money. and they don't allow for the firing of bad teachers. unacceptable.

how in the world can you run a business like this?

we should just fire them all. and bring in some fresh graduates from the universities to take over.
