Tempest

The school system is all astir about the selection of Director of Schools by the school board.  We used to elect them, but that was changed some time ago.  I've been listening to the interviews online.  We've had the equivalent of W for director, and one of the candidates looks like Monica Lewinsky but is just like Sarah Palin.  I can't get away from them!  Just hope she doesn't get it and am so glad I retired when I did.  Teacher morale is the lowest I've ever seen it which is partly because of administration but also because of all the changes in education that suck.  It's going to take a miracle for education to improve in the US.

It's sad that in this country we don't value teachers. So many people think it's just an easy job that anyone can do.
Not so.

Our school board hires them. The other day the Super. visited my friend's classroom. She pointed out the leaky window that she had put in for repair for months and months (real concern about black mold in the walls) - next day the maint. crew was out and they were not happy....

the comics were spot on- it's sad that testing trumps LEARNING.
