We need more GOOD teachers.
We don’t need more teachers. We need BETTER teachers who aren’t stupid mind-numbed liberals.
Let’s ALL work for the government!!
We’ll let everyone else pay taxes!
I was watching a documentary on the Nazi controlled government under Adolf Hitler, and the documentary said that the greatest supporters of Adolf Hitler were elementary school teachers. Eventually, the Nazi government controlled every facet of the education in Germany. Let his be a wake up call. I fear we are headed in the same direction.
Obama wants more dues-paying union members - whether they are called “teachers” or not is irrelevant.
We need K-8 curriculum to be purged of ALL social engineering in the curriculum and in the class room, purged of the Left’s political bias embedded in the curriculum an d text books, and return K-8 education to an emphasis on building, and supporting the advancement of BASIC SKILLS, in reading and vocabulary, geography, math and science.
When the proper cuts are made in what does not belong in the curriculum and in the class room, there is plenty of time left for the existing number of teaching slots to concentrate on the basics. Maybe we need to fire some of the well-indoctrinated “teachers” that have come out of academia with their professors’ Leftist marching orders and hire some retired business people who already have the proven knowledge, skills and real-world experience.
Grades 8 to 12 need a whole other set of reforms, providing very different education opportunities for students with very different levels of already acquired skills, and already established aptitudes, to try to focus on their real world career prospects.
That’s about as original and insightful as saying “we need more funding for education”.
Throwing more union at the problem will make it worse.
“We Need More Teachers”
TRanslation: “We Need MOre Statlinist Indoctrinators of Young People”
We need more homeschoolers.
We need more teachers because we have more children of illegals taking seats in our classrooms. Lets spend the money instead on deporting 10,000 illegal families.
Translation: We need more Bill Ayers types to indoctrinate our kids.
From Investor's Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:
"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.
One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.
The Annenberg papers are quite extensive 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

Federal taxpayer funding of hiring more school teachers (unconstitutional, by the way) will result in more union dues paid, and more election campaign support.
Do architects have a labor union contributing to DimRat campaign funds?
And more lawyers,doctors have lost their license than teachers,now that is one strong union. /s
LOL that’s as bad as slick willie’s 100,000 new LEO’s......do people actually know how many school districts are in even 1 state much less all 50? 0’s math skills do not compute any more than slick willie’s did.
Memphis spends twice as much to build the same sq foot school building as does Shelby CO. They must have pretty schools for the deprived. And we in the county have to pick up the tab of $2.00 for every $3.00 the city spends. (Different schools systems for the county and the city. City schools are dysfunctional) General student ratio is 20 per teacher now. For what we spend as a nation on ‘education’ we could hire private tutors for each child and save money.
