    Teaching is also a part of our infrastructure. Like our crumbling highways & bridges, education is being neglected in the name of budget cuts and profits (because we know that schools must be managed on a business model).

    I was at my HS for 38yrs (27 in the classroom) and it is not the same anymore. It's not a 'home' anymore like it used to be. And at the end (I retired this year), I felt that I was of no value to the school or the district. Just another old teacher to get rid of so we don't have to pay them that big salary (ha!)

    It's not going to get better because the current attitude is that people are a liability, not an asset. And they are treated as such.

    Only the weak & defeated are called to account for their crimes.
