    Is this what we pay our teachers to do to our kids?

    This political indoctrination is rampant, not just in elementary school, but in colleges as well.

    Most teachers are professional and fair.

    Three decades of crappy public school education is how we got Obama. Expect more of the same in the years to come.

    What do you expect when the worst students are the only ones pursuing teaching certifications?

    There are many thousands of people who are more qualified to teach than the so called educators that now reign over our classrooms but are not allowed because they didn't take enough credits on how to fill out a lesson plan. Thank the NEA for that

    teachers want to be addressed as professionals without any of the responsiblities of professionals..and you have many teachers simply teaching out of their fields. classic education is dead

    I scored in the top 5% of SATS.

    I graduated cum laude from Boston University with a degree in social sciences (history mostly) and literature but one specializing in (meaning having taken a few course) in secondary education.

    I scored in the top 5% of LSATs, and the top 1% of GMATS, too.

    I decided became an educator, anyway.

    I was driven from that profession by the absurdity of how teachers are treated by the administrations controlled by people who intellectually wouldn't make a garbuncle on my ass, folks.

    Johnny cannot read because any nitwit with a lot of nitwit friends can end up on school boards in charge of our local school systems.

    Johnny cannot read because educators do not control education at the K-12 level.

    Real estate agents, school bus drivers, retired bank clerks, and housewives with too much time on their hands, end up running our schools.

    I couldn't have designed a worse system for who controls our educational process, than we have in this nation.
