Have you ever wondered this question?
The reason I am asking is that we have many students who are failing in today’s school system and it cannot be all on the students, we have teachers that are boring and have no life in them and some who are just waiting to die that is how long they have been teaching.
Let’s keep it real
When should a teacher retire?
1) 20 years
2) when they are no longer teaching, but just taking up space just to get a paycheck
3) when they die
4) when the students are not learning (when the teacher has a failing % of students)
We need to really think about this and come to a clear cut off. Since our students are the ones suffering through out the USA, our educational system is not like it was 20 years ago where a teacher is actually teaching and enjoying what he/she is teaching.
We have teachers that could care less if your student learns anything in their class and that is really sad however everyday we lose a student due to the fact that the TEACHER has FAILED them in so many ways.. why would you stay in a class or school who only wants you there for the small amount of funds they get for you being their daily?

All of theses so called items they are placing may not be a good thing if we are not thinking of our students first.
I have never been so disgusted then I am right now, as much as I have worked and helped and want each student to be able to learn in their own way, I now see that if things keep going in the direction they are going and the School Board is allowed to do these things then the only ones we will be failing are our students that we pledged to educate in their own communities.
So are we failing our students and not doing enough to educate them? That really is a soul searching question that needs to be answered by each and everyone adult that has contact with a child. If we are not making an impact on that child;’s life then what is our purpose?
I still have faith that we can help each student and make sure they have a education, but we have to remember not all students learn in the same way and that we need to make sure their outline is gained for them and the way they learn, There is no one way to learn and there is no one way to teach.
