    "...teachers like me facilitate our student's ability to think for themselves...."
    Can you prove that your kids can "think for themselves"? Can you prove that this is because of what you did, or is all the credit due to their home environment? (When things go wrong, teachers blame the home environment. When things go right, teachers pat themselves on the back).

    Do you expect us to just take your word for it? That's what the bankers said when they said the Mortgage Bonds wouldn't blow up. We're not falling for that one again!

    I don't think that you can prove these things without a standardized test. Absent the test, parents and taxpayers need only look at the output of the Public Schools to come to our own conclusions:

    If the Public Schools are doing such a great job, why can so many kids not read or do basic math?

    If the Public Schools are doing such a great job, why do so few kids know our country's history?

    If the Public Schools are doing such a great job, why do Republicans keep winning elections? I though you were teaching them to think for themselves!

    But we we look with our eyes, we see kids who are easily misled and cheated, kids who have no knowledge of Math, Language, Science, or History with which to defend themselves or their Republic.

    Whatever you guys are doing ain't workin'. As the kids would tweet, "Yr doin it rong".

    (I don't mean you specifically, I mean The System in general. But unless there is an objective test, nobody tell the difference between you and the worst teacher in the country...)

      The authoritarian system that has been in place for years is your system....

      I know what I'm talking about..

      Your methods are anti-democratic and insidious..you have succeeded in framing a complex biological symbiotic teacher-student process in terms of test scores.....

      You can't say you are for children but "against teachers" (your words)...

      look at your outcomes.....

      I can see the decay all around me...You better do some critical thinking about what your peers have done......

      Educational experience based on behaviorism is mind control.
