Public Education Continues to Crumble... Good Teachers Leaving in Droves

18 January 2014 at 11:38:28 PM

When the governor, legislators, SBOE, school administrators and district school boards do not support real education, teachers and children.... why on Earth would good people want to teach in the public education system?  They can be abused in the regular work environment at a higher salary.

No one wants to deal with the basics in education.  They just opt to throw band aids at a broken down system and think that will do it. 

Until we permit teachers to teach for learning's sake instead of to get kids to pass State exams that really mean nothing, more good teachers will opt to leave public education and the system will continue to fall into chaos.

"I never let my schooling interfere with my education."  ---- Mark Twain (and me often)

There are many reasons for public education falling into the muck created by man. Republicans are not immune in their contribution to the mess and chaos in public education; it is NOT just Democrats who fail the system and torture home owners to provide 80 percent of their property taxes to fiance public education.

One of the most dramatic changes in public education and in other areas of our lives, has been the disintegration of the American family. No other cause has been as great a detriment to public education except for government's interference in the quality and objectives inherent within our current system.

Republicans and Democrats get divorced and/or screw up their families.  It's more human nature these days than political affiliations.

As for public education, it is government regulation (that includes financing, ability to teach teachers, objectives, politics, stupid tests, "incentive" programs, teacher salaries and class sizes) that is killing public education.

"When will they ever learn?" --- Bob Dylan (from Blowing in the Wind)

The State continues to fight against its constitutional obligation to Texas children and public education.  It continues to divert its responsibility onto local government, which in turn, crushes homeowners with the majority of paying the tab to education children.  It ain't working.

All the nonsense Texas Legislators, the SBOE and their business cohorts come up with to supposedly educate children is a sham.

Until teachers are treated as professionals, until they are properly trained, until State exams are thrown out the window, until teachers are paid a professional wage based on their own education and experience and basically until government gets out of the education business...  public education will continue to spiral down the toilet.
