9. Stop the foolish games while parents and children are worrying about means!

I have four children. Three of them are finished college but, I still have one that is in the middle of this mess. In February I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My health bills after insurance are unreal. The only way my daughter can go to school is student loans. They do not realize the fear that students and parents are having as a result of them playing with legislation. I listen to how much is being spent on elections. I am a public school teacher (exemplary according to state standards). They wonder what is wrong with education. Why can't we act like the greatest country on earth and make sure that all American children can go to college? They "talk the talk" but, can't "walk the walk". I'm sick of the statistics that show people not trusting public education. Do something about this! I always hear teachers should be paid more but, everytime we get a chance to get paid more it is struck down in state legislature. I'm sick of hearing the story about how the unions protect poor educators. The unions are the only ones who stand up for teachers. If they are done away with our pay will be even less. Lawmakers don't think twice about giving themselves a raise. They want to constantly check my qualifications and test me. Let's check the qualifications of the people who are making these laws. These "goof offs" in Washington could care less about the children of America. They are just looking for the next almighty hand out. Put some of that corporate money where it belongs toward the education of the students of tomorrow! Quit playing games with my child! Some one out there be real!
