Should teachers pay be incentive based?

I never said we didn't need teachers of course we do. All i'm saying is a teacher could dedicate hours to a single student and unless that student is willing to listen and apply themselves and take their education seriously it won't do any good. It's the easy way out to blame teachers for the fact that some students are doing poorly in school. I Just can't agree with it being 100% the teachers fault at some point, Like it or not the student has to take responsibility. And want to do better.  (May 5, 2009 | post #99)

Should teachers pay be incentive based?

In a perfect world public schools would have the funds to have a specialized classes for students with different learning disabilities. As it is right now a lot of students who just need a little extra help in a certain subject get put in special ed. I don't agree with that as in your case you just need extra help with math not with anything else. I'm not saying the teachers shouldn't take more of an interest but at the end of the day it's still up to the student to apply themselves and learn as much as they can. And if need be even do extra at home. When the students step up and take their eductaions seriously you will see improvements not only at KC but at other schools as well.  (May 5, 2009 | post #94)

And what's going to happen to those kids? who will teach them? Should they just be left uneducated with no real chance at a future? I have said that the teachers are not innocent in this there is more they can do but they can't be expected to work miracles these students are not little kids. They are young adults if they don't want to apply themselves that's on them. I did the least i could in high school i just wanted out of there my attitude was not the teachers fault. And i don't think it's the teachers fault in this case. At some point the parents and teachers are not to blame the students need to take responsibility for themselves. It's their future they are working towards. They need to step up and take it more seriously.  (May 5, 2009 | post #89)

With elementary kids it's the teachers. With high school kids they want to be treated like adults so why can they not act like adults? They should not have to be controlled. Again this goes back to the students taking some responsibility for their education. Yeah it's easy for them to come home from school and say that a teacher doesn't like them or has something against them or whatever. I know i used that excuse a few times myself but at some point the students are going to have to step up and take school seriously. If they don't it won't matter who is teaching at KC.  (May 5, 2009 | post #87)

I never said all kids were delinquents. I'm sure there are many fine students at KC. I'm just saying the easy thing to do is to blame the teachers. I agree that some teachers should take more of an interest in the students. But at the same time why should a teacher go out of their way to try to help someone who doesn't care while a student that is really interested in their education gets pushed to the side. I don't believe theres an easy answer to this problem and i truly do believe that the student is as responsible as the teacher for their education.  (May 5, 2009 | post #84)

Should teachers pay be incentive based?

I have never said in any of my replies that the teachers were innocent in this situation. Like i said at a young age it's easy to keep kids interested in school but the older they get especially once they become teenagers it's hard to keep them interested in school. I know when i was in high school it wouldn't have mattered how qualified or interesting the teacher was i didn't want to listen. All i'm saying is it's the easy way out to blame the teachers these high school kids are old enough to decide if their going to apply themselves and take school seriously or if their not. Every teacher at KC could be fired and unless the attitude changes amongst the students it's not going to improve.  (May 5, 2009 | post #82)

Man sentenced for downloading child porn

I agree there are a lot of people working a lot of hours to shut down sites that offer sick content like child porn. The sad thing that i saw on another post about this topic was that the person who originally posted it put it on here as a warning to people that "big brother" is watching. I think it's disgusting and a sad statemnet that anyone would care how the government got their info as long as this sicko was caught and taken off the streets. However on the original post as well there were other comments talking about how to change and protect content so as to "save yourself 10 years" It's a sad commentary on society when people don't seem to care about the way children are treated.  (May 5, 2009 | post #39)

I still say that you can't put all of the blame on the teachers. I agree that they have their part in it but i don't think it's completley their fault. Especially at the high school level when their dealing with teenagers and not little kids anymore. My kids are 4 and thankfully they love going to school but right now it's fun for them to go. We'll do our best as they get older to keep them interested in school and let them know just how important their education is but at some point, Like high school their education depends as much on their attitude and how much they want to apply themselves as it does on what kind of teachers they have.  (May 5, 2009 | post #73)

Obama

I don't think Obama is the be all end all like some others do. But at the same time i think it's still too early to condemn him as the worst thing to ever happen to America. Admitidly i don't keep up with politics as much as i should i have heard a lot of stuff on Obama but it's hard to tell how much of it is true and how much is sour grapes. the thing is he was elected as president and love him or hate him we've got him until at least 2012.  (May 4, 2009 | post #9)

It's true there's not a lot to do in Barbourville. But there is the water park you can go there and walk or fish or whatever. There is also Walker park. Other than that not really a whole lot but it's a nice town with for the most part nice people. I moved here from Michigan and Barbourville took some getting used to but like i said all in all it's not a bad little town.  (May 4, 2009 | post #6)

I don't think it's fair to say that the dope heads and pill whores kids are to blame. I know a lot of people who didn't have the best home life that applied themselves and took their education seriously and rose above their raising. There's a lot of factors as to why kids struggle in school and admitidly home life is one of those. But there's just as many kids from good homes doing badly in school as there are kids from bad homes.  (May 3, 2009 | post #51)
