Child Indoctrination Methods of The Left

How about you come on over and do mine for me? I pray you have no children that require a teacher who is brave enough to step outside the box in order to give him/her the education they deserve. By your standards, teachers that do that kind of stuff are "the problem" I love what I do. Pay is not an issue for me nor is being evaluated. I have no issue with being graded on my performance because the performance of my students speaks for itself. My CRIME is wanting to ensure that those of my students that need me to spend time teaching them GET that time. Unfortunately regulations have been put in place that expect us to follow procedure. Here is a REAL LIFE example of what that procedure looks in the classroom with REAL students. This timeline we must adhere to states that on week 3 of the second 9 weeks, teacher A must be teaching students long division. She knows that her students have not mastered their multiplication facts, nor can they divide well when doing a problem such as 12/9. If teacher A feels it would benefit those children to be taught the multiplication facts that they have not yet mastered she/he is reprimanded for not sticking to the timeline. Essentially the logic of those in charge goes like this: by March when High Stakes testing takes place, teachers must be sure their students KNOW THE TEST!!! Why? Better scores means fatter bankroll for Parish and school bank accounts. So they expect us to make sure that we get those kids who are "top notch" as much knowledge as they need to carry their school to the top of the money pile. My logic is EVERY student deserves the chance to succeed!!! How can those students who need teachers to teach a concept for maybe a week more ever catch up? Oh Mommy and Daddy right? What if let's say, they have no one at home that can spend time flashing multiplication cards until he/she masters that skill, nor are these parents able to hire a private tutor to teach this child????? The way I see it is they deserve my time. I am capable of designing lessons which will challenge high achievers, motivate and boost those middle of the road students, and allow those a step behind to feel what it feels like to succeed. So I guess I AM THE PROBLEM after all.  (Jan 31, 2013 | post #21)

BTW I'm not part of the problem. I chose to rally at the Capitol but also have chosen to not be part of these union entities.  (Jan 25, 2013 | post #17)

Small minds are easily amused and get pissed easily. Lol. Do you have any facts to prove what you just stated? Other than media misinforming you or government shit talk because the union encourages teachers to unite and be heard. Do you have any idea what this "school reform" is already doing to harm our children? No more kindergarten, school counselors, less text books and funds to provide tools to those that cannot pay can get assistance in order to have clothes and supplies needed to get an education? Get your detail straight before making uneducated comments.  (Jan 25, 2013 | post #16)
