I just finished watching a documentary called Waiting for Superman. The movie is about the schools in America. It's sad at some parts, and sorta hopeful at others. Teachers are some of the most important people that we ever come across in our lives, and all of us who grew up with the ability to go to school are lucky. Unfortunately, not all schools and teachers are good at what they're hired to do. I'd like to think that if being a teacher was a high paying job that more people would want to become teachers and then there would be more competition and higher standards for what teachers are responsible for doing. Making teachers more accountable for earning their high salaries would improve the quality of the education that kids receive. I don't know enough about the situation to back up what I'm saying, but it's just a thought.
What do you teacher types think? (charlie, jamie, etc............)
