    If this runs its course, Alex will steal Betty’s observation and knock out another best-seller self-help book…

    There’s nothing like undermining your spouse and making them the bad guy with your kids. It may be the perks of fatherhood, but he’s neither a great father or an adequate husband.

    I was pushed up a grade. Tell me about bored. However, when you ask more of a teacher to raise your kids and tie their hands as far as discipline is concerned, the added administration, the classroom chaos added and abetted by uninterested moms and dads who undermine an educator’s authority (while assuming no responsibility on their part) and a classroom of 40 relatively well-behaved kids who don’t want their parents summoned to school and who have ready-made study buddies in the older students changes drastically. In one-room classrooms, older students OFTEN mentored the younger kids and learned leadership skills and responsibility while they did so.

    And nobody had to teach to the test to get funding for a school district based on scores.

    I guess you whiners don’t know about the reams of paperwork that is now associated with teaching, the state and local requirements, the standardized tests, the idiot administrators, and the nonpaticipatory parents (who think their children can do no wrong) depending on you to parent their kids by teaching them about sex, manners, and not bullying/killing each other so they get home safely each day.
