    It’s a daycare center in disguise.

    I salute all teachers all over the world! For the most part they are unsung heroes.

    Sounds alot like being a nurse which I am. And, there’s so many people unemployed-we certainly could use more of both!

    Darkeforce & Musmo - Would you allow your kid to be in the classroom with one of them?

    If all of today’s parents had to meet parenting standards like those standards that they expect of teachers, etc., our schools would actually be institutions of learning and the home would be a place of love and security and responsibilities for the children. Any fool can make a child, it takes wise and commited people to raise a child.

    Great gravy, Darkeforce, give it a rest! Money doesn’t make education. Good, qualified teaches do. I was a teacher for many years and I know the best education is when there are no obstacles between teacher and student. “Funding” creates bureaucracy and more paperwork, more duties, and more distractions. And speaking of needless, mindless distractions and obstacles, then there are teachers’ unions. They’re ONLY concerned with politics and power - NOT with education or students. You’ve been gulping the kool-aid too much, you don’t understand the truth.

    Politicians should have to live a year as a typical public school teacher before they’re allowed to cut even a single cent from Education, or attack the Teachers’ Union.—- You like the politicians forget it is not the politicians money. It is not majicaly there. They have to take it from me. I don’t have any more to give. I worked at a school district many years. They have plenty they just need to cut out the waste. The class room doesnt have enough money because it is wasted by district not because we don’t give enough already. My mother and father in law were both teachers and made $87,000 a year each. Not bad for 9 months a year. Yes they put in a lot of hours during the school year but guess what? So do the rest of us for 12 months.

    Wishing all a great Easter. Huray for teachers. I work at a place where trouble kids attend. There are adults who report what a teen does when leaving a class or if a teacher needs help with a teen calls for that help. I do agree politicians and voters who do not want school to have the money to run need to see what the average teacher goes through in a day. With 40 to 50 kids in a regular class wonder who for a child doesn’t keep up.
