Education is lacking nationwide. As a country, we're dropping in quality of education, test scores and in the percentage of kids who graduate high school.
Someone's to blame. Let's see--
A majority of them are overpaid.
They have all weekends and holidays off.
They also take three months a year off as well.
They always make more money than the preceding year.
They only work a few hours a day when they do work.
They have a huge public responsibility.
Tenure has it's benefits. 90% of those seeking to return to the halls are returned.
Who is it? If you said teachers, you are wrong.
It's Congress. And they're the one's cutting the funding for those hard working people charged with educating our most prized possessions, our kids. They are responsible for teaching and protecting them. A good teacher can make a good student. But a bad congressperson can destroy our entire society.
Maybe we should look into more respect and funding for our nation's future. Don't be so free with your vote. Make it count. Stop rewarding partisanship and start voting issues. When people want to take your rights away, you better ask why and loudly.Voters in North Carolina, in Texas, in Arizona, in Georgia, 28 states and counting, are trying to stop students, minorities, the poor and the elderly from voting all together.
Reproductive rights are being regulated and not by doctors. By legislators.
We pay these elected officials four times what we pay our teachers on average. With the results we're seeing, where would you like the money spent? And who do you think earns it more?
Support our teachers and vote out our decaying Congress. Teachers are there to lift up the future of the populace. Congress is out to destroy it. Give it some thought -- especially when the next round of proposed budget cuts come up. Ask why our Congress is taking even more from our future by taking more from education.
