Glenn Beck's show is going to be on teachers today. I really feel for the teachers of this nation. The majority of our teachers is outstanding, but many have complaints, as well they should. They are being held back by unions and principles and many can't teach the way they would like to. One of thing's I think should be brought back is strong discipline again. I had a teacher in 6th grade who used the old ruler to the knuckles , she did it only once years before I had her class. Just the talk about it made it so that no one had to be disciplined like that again. Maybe it's old fashioned but something in the way of giving them back the power to keep their classes in line clearly needs to be done We need to get teaching classes back to the levels that we had when we were number 3 in the world. Socialism must be taken out, it is not working. Why in the world do we have Political ideology in the school system at all? It should not have left or right ideology period. Just plain ol teaching of each and every subject. The system needs to be overhauled it will be interesting to hear their complaints and suggestions today.
