  • Mr. Kalahar,

    That used to be mostly true but not so much anymore. The union school system has our money and wants more of it - but test scores have not risen in 40 years. Keep throwing money at it !

    It is time to hold the mid career teacher's feet to fire like in real business and industry after all it is a guaranteed salary and retirement, health care etc. that can exceed $100, 000 in mid career for a part time job. Oh I forgot they don't have to deal with the real world and losing their homes to an economy that mostly rewards taxpayer supported jobs now.
    People are investing in their human capital, education, skills but I keep seeing them waving signs at intersections for minimum wage.
    It is easy to tell people how to get ahead when you have a guaranteed job regardless of your performance and classroom conduct.

    Mr. Kalahar show me the new 20% and how they are moving up.
    Oh I forgot they are 35 years old living with their parents trying to get more skills and education and paying off loans.
    It is broken and you don't have to deal with it so be very happy you will have a much better future than 50% of your students.
