I say no...it is not. And the last few days certainly has helped prove my point.
Doesn't it depend on who you ask?
As a profession, yea. As a union, no.
After seeing the way the kids treat teachers in middle school and high school, my answer is no.
I have many teachers in my family, both of my Grandmothers were teachers and of my father's family 3 out of 4 were teachers and out of my generation, 6 out of 14 are teachers with another 3 being nurses...and 2 firefighters. And then 2 of us military. We have public service in our bloodline.
And it is amazing to watch how in the last 20 years how teaching has come to be so denigrated. Why do we wonder at how we compare with other countries and cultures that respect education and educators?
Exactly...and where do the students get that attitude towards their teachers and where to they learn NOT to value education?
Why? Cause we don't think teachers should be allowed to bankrupt states? You need to grow the fuck up.. As do all liberal whiney asses.
From their parents and peers. When you instill a sense of entitlement in children, you do more harm than good.
How would you like it if all the doctors and nurses went on strike? Huh?
Well alot of the kids laugh at the teachers because they know the teachers have no real power over them, the teachers cannot grab, hit or even cuss at the students. The teachers are shooting blanks and the kids know that. I think Military Drill Instructors are needed at some of these schools.
