    I hope the best for you, I am going to school to become a teacher... It is not easy because they are taking away funds from such a needed resource but, someday they will realize it is a necessity, not a luxury to educate.

    It is not society. It is the underfunded educational system, and the fact that school teaches bullshit. I can learn more USEFUL information online in one day than any school could teach me in a full semester.

    Blame needs to be passed around equally. The teachers, the parents, the students.. they're all responsible.

    How the hell can we have a school system that is successful when we treat it like a bastard child?
    It's chronically underfunded
    always being blamed for things it has no control over

    and NOW they wanna defund it some MORE and take away teachers bargaining rights

    Way ta go America icon_cool.gif

    Freedom is the ability to escape from those elements of society that are destructive to you. So why does it matter that there is a crisis?

    Anyone who thinks teachers are to blame should try teaching for a week.

    Teaching is a science that takes many years to master. Some get it, some don't. Its just the way ball bounce's.

    I agree with this but would add politicians as well.

    As a High School Teacher, I not only have to teach the required curriculum, legislated by the Ministry, but I also have to deal with the increasing amount of psycho/social problems which our teenagers face on a daily basis. I can not tell you the number of students who show up in my office with family issues ranging from divorce, parental/relationship abuse, poverty, eating disorders, bullying, .........the list goes on. For some of the students, the only support system they ever receive is within the walls of their school. Ironically enough, the school is their safe haven from a dysfunctional home life and society which seems to have less and less time and resources to address the needs of these young people.

    By no means, are teachers perfect. However, if they are to truly make a difference in a student's life, they need the support of all concerned, including administration, parents, and the greater community. Our educational system will only work if we come together in unity to ensure that each student is provided with an opportunity to succeed in every area of his or her life.

    The educational needs of these young people far exceeds academics. As the old adage goes; "It takes a village to raise a child". I believe that it also takes a village to ensure an educational system which will instill our students with the neccessary tools to succeed not only in school, but in life.

    There are some teachers, parents, and students who are responsible.
    I am a teacher myself and have worked in great school districts, as well as some bad ones. While some of my colleagues are not effective in their classrooms, the majority are wonderful educators. Students and parents seem to be the limiting factor in a successful educational setting. Many of the students at my school could care less about what goes on in the classroom, despite efforts to make education meaningful and contextual.

    There needs to be a paradigm shift in the way we as a society value education. Until then, the status quo will continue...

    And I echo what was said above as well.

    If I were a teacher, i'd make my students pay for my living, and they'll have access to my knowledge for 24/7 O.o;

    I think state mandated curriculum has a huge part to do with that. It's unfortunate, but kids are "taught" to memorize facts for standardized tests (that they more often than not forget after the tests) more than they are taught to learn about the world and draw connections...

    Well judging by your dramatic posts, you seem to be short tempered. plus the fact that you just openly admitted you "HATE BEING AROUND LITTLE CHILDREN", gives logical reason that you would probably not be a good candidate to teach. children.
