If your answers to the above three questions are, 'Yes', 'Yes' and 'Yes', then get off your backsides and do something about it.
Too many people are in 'awe' of teachers and entrust their children into their care.
Yes, many are great teachers and rold models BUT many more are NOT.
Some teachers know 'nothing' about the big wide world into which they are sending your children. They have gone from school, to university to teachers' college and back to school.
Some of the 'high ups' in the Boards of Education have spent very little time in classrooms - actually teaching children - and can't climb up that 'ladder' fast enough to earn the big bucks.
Go and check their resumes and teaching 'history'. You'll find out that I am being truthful. All I wanted to do is teach childen.
Don't you be afraid to approach these folk and speak YOUR mind. These children are YOURS and you have every right to speak on their behalf.
If you are one of the adults who had a tough time at school because of 'teachers' attitudes and behaviours towards you...then make sure it doesn't bloody well happen to YOUR kids.
I've worked with many adult 'survivors' of education systems in England and Canada, and have heard 'horror stories' of how teachers turned students 'AGAINST' educsation and they were too young, at the time, to stick up for themselves and voice their opinions.
Yes...I am on my soapbox again...but I do beg of you....support your children. Teachers DO NOT ALWAYS KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR THEM - I WILL REPHRASE THAT - THEY RARELY KNOW WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOUR CHILD.
I am a teacher! I wish I didn't have to retire soon...but...enough said.
I am willing to bet that many Spoof Writers experienced put-downs at the hands of wicked people who thought of themselves as highly educated individuals.
