Responding to the ridicule of teachers and the teaching profession by politicians and self proclaimed "experts"!

Oh - And Make Sure the Window Shades are Straight Too!

Mr. Fletcher’s article hits the nail right on the head but he fails to mention even more burdens currently placed on public education. Career awareness, dental exams, financial literacy, individualized special education programs, work study programs, drug alcohol and smoking prevention, obesity prevention, scoliosis testing, diversity training and preparation for a myriad of standardized testing all of  which are foisted on public schools throughout the year.

Then, to add insult to injury, public officials chose to malign, vilify, punish and attempt to turn the public away from the teachers who are assigned these herculean tasks.  
P.S.
I have started a petition pertaining to one of my pet peeves. You can see it at the top of the right hand sidebar. Please take a look and if you agree please sign it and pass it on to a friend or relative of like mindedness. Thanks.
