The public school teacher should be our heroes. The are terribly underpaid. Why this country doesn't believe in investing in the child is beyond me. We don't want to pay to send them to daycare, we don't want to pay to have them taught properly. What are our children to us? Dogs, that we brush aside because they take too much of our time? Blaming the teacher first is a sure sign of not taking responsibility as a parent to make sure your child get's his/her homework done and studies properly, IMHO. :)

Heroic teachers are our heroes. Crappy teachers should play craps.

Don't make us break down your work year, please.

Paying teacher more = investing in the child? Wrong!

We don't want to pay to send them to daycare, we don't want to pay to have them taught properly. ...SNIP...Blaming the teacher first is a sure sign of not taking responsibility as a parent to make sure your child gets his/her homework done and studies properly, IMHO. :)

So, which is it? Do we (I assume you mean the government) pay to send our kids to daycare, or do we take responsibility as parents. You can’t have it both ways.

Are you a teacher? I'm just curious.

The average pay for a teacher K through 12 in my town is $84,000 per year, and the school system is one point above failing. how much do you propose we pay them?

At present my school system costs $20,000 per student per year, and they do an awful job.

It's not about the pay. The teachers are incompetent, and their union is working to prevent the education of children. Respectfully, you are entitled to your opinion, but I wish you would get a little more information before you tell us what it is.

Vouchers are the only answer, and the teachers unions will do anything to prevent them, no matter how many children will suffer.

The public school teacher should be our heroes.

You should be ashamed of yourself for a quote like this. Public school teachers are shamelessly pillaging the public with the help of their union, and a political system designed to maintain the status quo and keep them fed at the public trough, in spite of more than adequate evidence that they are incapable of providing the services that they have been hired for.

They continue to fail, year after year, and all that happens is they get more money, taken from the taxpayers at gunpoint, to waste.

They don't care how many children's lives it ruins, there will be no accountability in the public school system, and there will be no competition for the taxpayer dollar.

The union's position is that we can pry their monopoly control of education from their cold dead hands.

If you teach at a public school you should hang your head in shame.
