image for US Legislators Agree to Leave Education Policymaking to Educators
With new laws, educators can spend more time actually educating.

For years, decisions for education have been made by legislators at the state and federal level. These legislators have little or no education experience, a fact that has caused several educators nationwide to feel very uncomfortable.

"We would like to write our own laws." said teacher Willy Garcia. "These legislators have never been in the classroom, and they have no ideas the struggles we face day-to-day."

After many months of lobbying congress and writing strongly worded letters, legislators have agreed that what is best for education is to let educators make decisions.

"Ultimately, they were right all along," said a state senator. "The opposite of pro is con, and the opposite of progress is congress, and we want to stop that stereotype in its tracks today. We have decided to go back to our roots as a by-the-people-for-the-people government and allow teachers to police themselves at the local and district levels from now on."

Teachers are reportedly feeling a great deal of relief due to the lightening of their paperwork load.

"Congress' ideas on education created a lot of paperwork. Now we can focus on actually teaching our students," Willy Garcia stated. Mr. Garcia is a long-time English teacher, and although he is pleased at the progress, he still wants to recommend new teachers to pick a different career field.

A shocking new study shows that cynicism is growing at unprecedented rates in the education profession.
