Blaming bad teachers is an excuse.Who comes up with the:* course objectives?* teaching strategies?* standardized tests?* school structure?Not the teachers!
Wow! We're sixteen trillions dollars in debt, and half our population is
on welfare.Why do we trust the feds to run our schools?
This task in not only daunting, its impossible means of evaluating teachers who
live here in Utah and comparing them with teachers and schools in China. Free
education has no absolutes except in socialist school system limiting freedom of
speech and Freedom of thought.Teachers bound by the system is
creating teachers who have lost their pride of being an educator and drop out of
school with students like flies leaving a dead empty carcass. Because our system of education is impossible to rate or measure has been its
strength and success of creating America. Limiting education to measurable
standards to count the money is disastrous.Knowledge changes too
fast for government and technology to maintain a standard and only teachers have
the ability to adapt to these changes and keep education and students updated on
a daily basis. This is the secret to the success of our education system. We train teachers and certify teachers with years of education, then we
doubt them and their years experience and personal involvement at the core of a
students soul? There is no failure in education, failure is in layers of
doubting the ability of teachers to adapt and rate their students.
