    Evaluations are not evaluations. It's forcing, and shaping teachers to fit a liberal mentality and be a puppet of the state. Tests and scores is a waste of time and money.


    Half our people are on welfare, and two thirds are no higher then a sixth grade level.

    Government schools do not work,- no matter how much money you pump in. It's our biggest scam. Good luck to our striking teachers.

    I have no sympathy for these teachers at all. They are among the highest paid teachers in the country whose salary averages over $70K for 9 months work with very good benefits. If you don’t want to teach, get out and let someone else do the job!
