Education News – None from it Good

Among other understandings, teachers of America’s elementary and school students were always likely to set examples for their students.

Besides the obvious of not seducing their students, public school teachers were expected to begin a certain feeling of decorum, which mandate during my school district integrated into the union contract the allowance: “Male teachers are permitted to remove their jackets within the classroom.”

Times have changed. Radically.

Teacher-student assignations have become almost commonplace, student behavior has gone beyond tossing spitballs and gum, and teacher dress codes have gone the clear way of high-buttoned shoes. Apart from teachers hitting on students, other behavioral modifications on the part of teachers are much less forgivable, particularly when the example they’re setting is just one of extreme misbehavior and lawlessness.

Teachers and other public servants in Wisconsin have a similar rights accorded to every American under the First Amendment towards the Constitution’s prohibition against infringement on freedom of speech, interference using the to peaceably assemble, and also the right of petitioning governmental redress of grievances.

What teachers don’t have the right or privilege to complete would be to disgrace themselves as well as their profession, to break laws, to interfere with government functions, in order to shamelessly trash both their profession and themselves by permitting teacher and outside thugs to direct and dictate their criminal activities.

In Wisconsin, teachers protesting new Republican Governor Scott Walker’s attempts to clean up the fiscal mess he inherited have reached new lows in their efforts to face up to limitations on collective bargaining rights.

Despite Walker’s offers of compromise, Wisconsin “educators” have abandoned their classroom responsibilities by calling in sick in droves, falsifying medical “sick notes,” committing outright slander against their duly-elected representatives, and resorting to the same bullying tactics they decry in their schools, which are condoned through the nation’s Bully-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama

Acting more like semi-civilized Third Worlders instead of American student heroines, their protests are costing millions. Their illegal seizure, occupation, and trashing of the Capitol building in Madison have, to date, led to some $7.5 million in damages and clean-up costs for their cash-strapped state, costs to be borne by already overburdened taxpayers: “Estimates of damage to marble includes $6 million to repair damaged marble inside the Capitol, $1 million for damage outside and $500,000 for costs to supervise the damage.”

The teacher along with other unions reached very cheap with death threats made to intimidate not just Republican legislators who’re struggling to achieve some fiscal sanity in the Badger State but their families as well.

One unedited, 2 paragraph email included the next polite threat that was more similar to a promise, replete with specific details on how the murders would occur:

“Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your families will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please show them this is because if we eliminate you and your families then itwill save the rights of 300,000 people as well as be able to close the deficit you have created. I hope you have fun in hell. Read below for more information on possible scenarios in which you will die… So we have also built several bombs that we have put into various locations around the areas in which we all know that you simply frequent. Including, your house, your car, the state capitol, and well I will not let you know all of them because that’s just no fun.”

The e-mail concluded with, “Please build your peace with God as soon as possible and say goodbye to all your family members we won’t wait any more. YOU WILL DIE!!!!.”

(In late Wisconsin news, the disruptive unionists were forcibly removed from the Capitol by police in order for the legislators-sans Democrat senators who were still in hiding-to conduct the state’s business.)

It’s not mere coincidence that, as pandemonium reigns in Madison, chaotic failure reigns in America’s public schools. Obama’s Education Secretary Arnie Duncan, who had previously officiated at Chicago’s record education failures, tore into George W. Bush’s 2002 “No Child Left Behind” education reform law.

In effect, Duncan doesn’t like NCLB’s reasonable standards simply because they have worked too well. However, over the course of nine years America’s teachers, school administrators, and state education departments were not capable of raising student and math skills. He “stressed the law is fundamentally broken and requires to be fixed this season, otherwise he forecast 82 % of the schools [some 80,000 of 100,000] could miss testing targets. That would be up from 37 percent this year.”

NCLB left too many kids behind and therefore should be revamped to really make it appear as if those left behind really should be considered as doing all right because the NCLB requisites were, well, too exacting and unreasonable.

Lower standards sufficiently and orangutans could graduate, and teachers and administrators and states could be free. It’s quicker to lower standards rather than raise edcational levels.

Duncan’s scheme-which is widely opposed-is the rough same as the Wisconsin teachers’ schemes in that both of them are exercises in deception. Duncan wants to give up on improving education so more students can feel good about being nimrods. In Wisconsin, they’re pretending to become protesting on principles and preserving rights whereas they are really trying to perpetrate a venal fraud.

Let’s suppose the teachers would devote just as much energy to teaching because they are to rampaging. They could actually meet NCLB standards and educate their kids!
