"Not the most comforting thing . . ."

I'm very concerned in the direction that education is heading. In an effort to counter balance the education funding shortage, many budget scrimping ideas are abounding. Right now, schools are fighting for the remaining, good, experienced teachers. Many have retired and the new prospects are getting slimmer.

Teaching is becoming a less desired occupation. The class sizes and the "control" over what and how teaching occurs is tightening. The amount of work on paperwork and outside of teaching documentation is ridiculous. Teaching is not looked at like a profession, but more like a scripted job that any one can step into. You can hear it subtly in the "professional" training we get. We have a mess at the top, and it just isn't in Racine. I'm very concerned that our future kids will definitely get the short stick.

I agree with you. I absolutely hate the attitude towards our educators today. Teachers are being held to these high standards with budgets and salaries being cut. Children are being sacrificed by politicians. Oh, don't get me started!
