7. How terribly sad
that the very people to whom children are entrusted each day, are being singled out as not worthy to
do the jobs for which they are trained. For some children ( probably a lot of them ), their teachers
are the only ones who have faith in their abilities and train them for a better future. Many students
confide in their teachers more than any other adult.
The corporate world is out to destroy the very foundation of education and replace it with charter schools.
I doubt Bill or Melinda Gates would last more than 5 minutes in a classroom. Suddenly they, and a few
other CEO's have become education experts! I wish there was an answer on how to stop this madness.
I would have never made it through high school and college had it not been for the teachers who believed in me.
