    has absolutely nothing to do with teachers, teachers' unions, or even building or district administrators.  It's the result of the educational policies of two administrations.

    Why do you want to pile on teachers?  Because it's easier to kick someone who's already down?  Are you just a bully?

      $87 for my son to take a test his teacher didn't even try to prepare her class for? This teacher has been teaching for 20+ years and tells her students that weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq. She disparages unions which is unbelievable since she would be unemployed without hers. I hope.

      Someone is to blame for employing teachers who do not teach. Right now my 9th grader is in an honors English class and the teacher is reading Tom Sawyer out loud to them. In class. They are not allowed to read it at home.

      The students had to pass a competency test to get into this class.

      When my other child had this teacher and I asked her how kids are supposed to have grammar skills when the lower grades aren't teaching them, she told me that she has grammar books and the kids can check them out and teach themselves.

      I am sick and tired of hearing how standardized testing is a good teacher assessment tool. It isn't.
