  •  Bill needs to roll up his sleeves and (4+ / 0-)

    learn what the life of a teacher is really like.

    He lives in a celebrity bubble, only seeing the  showcase classrooms with the newest high tech equipment. When the big wheels walk into a school, it's time for the staff and students to put on a show that feels good but does not reflect every day life in the schools.

    My suggestion for Bill would be to "student teach" for an extended period in a series of classrooms of varied conditions and competencies, including  the teaching of at risk students in inner city schools.

    Then we can have that conversation about "teaching conditions".

    If cats could blog, they wouldn't.
