Comments: Letter From The Teacher #10: What Do Teachers Know?

Very succinct.

Very well written, but this will not be read by those who are running the schools these days: politicians, lawyers, judges, bureaucrats, administrators, and others who have spent little time in the classroom save for a photo opportunity.

You may be correct, Guthrum, but I have printed this article and well be taking it to a couple of administrators this morning. 40% of the employees of the Tucson Public School System never have contact with a child. It is the worst kind of 'empire building' and it came about because of the DOE mandated States follow certain guidelines or lose federal funding. Basically, 'less government means better education'. Ah, but that answer is WAY too easy!!!

Well done, Mike. An administrator or two will read your article, probably sigh in agreement, and then return to do the devil's work.
