i have been saying for years that our public schools are a failure, but all we do is throw more money at a failing institute. as you can see when someone finally stands up to address the situation they are told to sit down and behave, so much for freedom of speech.these high priced baby sitters can not take any criticism because they think they are the answer and know everything. my opinion of these teachers are they are just there to collect the goodies the tax payers hand them. any body can sit behind a desk and hand out work sheets, the public school system is nothing more than an expensive baby sitting venture. get the ^*$^%$&^%$*&^% government out of the schools and maybe, just maybe we will see an improvement.
