  2. Realops----Once again you are dead wrong! Look up the most Charter schools can pick & choose which students they want in their schools....public schools do not have that luxury-------that alone should make Charter school far superior to public schools----but oh, look at that-----they are NOT!!!!

  3. relops--

    Have you ever even been inside a classroom? I'll take you on any day as far as the GRE exam goes & how hard I work. I am responsible for 600 students how about you?? Educators are some of the hardest working people I know -----usually 12-16 hours a day & get paid nothing for it! You need to do some research before you speak-----everything you have said is incorrect! It is because of people like you that teachers get a bad rap! I've many different college degrees & worked in the legal field before I got into education-----let me tell you, education is far more demanding then anything you have done I'm sure.

  4. OMG----this is sooooo frustrating! I am an educator and parent to a middle school age child. With that in mind I would like to say loud & clear-----Tony Bennett is an idiot (along with our fabulous governor) & together they have destroyed education in Indiana!! Both need to be booted out of the state (unfortunately Daniels has basically appointed himself president of Purdue University------so check that school off the top of your kids list!!) Government needs to stay out of education-------people who know nothing about education should educate themselves......we educators live with these morons in charge every single day! Mymy-----you might want to do some research on your buddy Tony before you thank the guy who has destroyed your child's chance at a decent education. Because of these tests, ALL schools (I don't care what they say---believe me) teach to the test!! It's not about the kids it is ALL about the scores....& what makes Tony & Mitch look good. So we are not educating our students, we are drilling the testing materials into their heads-------I am not happy about my child not learning much more than what the state says our kids should know!! It is frightening. Teachers are not allowed to teach & use their talents anymore......they must conform to what the state says they must do!! Then after all that, teachers are still blamed when kids fail these tests........are the kids themselves NOT responsible? How about the parents? --------------------- I just have a question-------if kids have tooth cavities does the dentist get blamed? Whose fault is that? The dentist has given you all the tools and precautions, but if you and your kid do not bother to care enough-- you will lose your teeth!!!Hmmmmmmmmmmm. Teachers can provide all the tools and knowledge necessary, but if the student and parent do not use those tools or put in the effort .....................A passionate educator of almost 20 years!!
