Waiting for Superman is in theaters now. I have not seen it yet, but there's been a lot of buzz. Waiting For "Superman" | Trailer & Clips | Official Movie Site I've been reading a lot of teacher bashing in the news lately, and as many of you know, here in NJ, Chris Christie has been at war with the NJEA. NJ has some of the top public schools in the country and some of the worst in our inner cities. Blaming teachers for school failure (without the kudos for success) seems self-defeating. What I mean by that, is an "us vs. them" mentality can cause horrible morale, which can affect teacher performance and students' attitudes toward education. I attended public schools in NY, PA, and NJ. Out of about 40 teachers from K-12, I can say I had about three that I did not "like". However, in hindsight, I probably still learned a lot in their classes. I cannot recall one teacher who did not teach. I'm curious to see how many others believe that teachers are not doing their jobs. What percentage do you feel are truly incompetent? I do believe that tenure can protect unstable and ineffective teachers. But I also believe that percentage is very, very low. What say you?
