Fix the Problem, Not the Blame
In the preceding months I have been inflicted with the painful process of listening to our politicians, parents and even students complaining in relation to how dreadful the education system is. I have taken note to each and every one of them fixating guilt on teachers. Is it executed directly? No, nevertheless the connotation was recognized. Personally I was simply wondering if it would be feasible for you all to discontinue becoming furious with teachers because we receive an excess of money.
Nevada Governor, Brian Sandoval appears to consider removing teacher tenure and having student achievement as the catalyst for evaluating teachers as the means to renovate education. At least those are the two most highlighted factors in his impending bill before Nevada's Legislature in enriching education. And this is not solely a Nevada confrontation; it appears to be the development in Washington D. C. as well with numerous bills focused on the similar issues.
I am growing tired of all of these B.S. statistics that inform us about the correlation linking money and teacher competence. I am tired of all this gossip about bad teachers, like the majority of us suck. I am exceedingly tired of all this crap in relation to the correlation of how if we made it effortless to eliminate bad teachers’ education would be refurbished while the reality is the vast majority people are not capable of defining a bad teacher. I am fed up with people judging and associating all or even most teachers with the NEA. I am extremely fed up with people looking to blame and not in favor of discovering solutions. And what thoroughly causes me to be furious are individuals that fabricate the conditions for what transpires in a classroom whom have not been IN a classroom in years, if ever.
You crave an authentic correlation? Gaze at the correlation linking parents, administration, community leaders, and media discontinuing their support of teachers and education deteriorating. When the public stopped respecting teachers naturally the students were not too far behind. Teachers are expected to “just take it” according to Dr. Ludwig one of America’s leading guru’s on discipline in the classroom. He went on to tell a group of 1100 teachers at a Las Vegas teacher conference, “If a child hits you, spits on you or slaps you it is YOUR fault.”Continued on the next page
