Good teachers are worth their weight in gold, but most teachers now thanks to unions and common core are not those teachers. Even while working they don’t contribute much beyond miseducation at this point. You could probably learn more for free online and by having your kid join some local project groups and athletic groups than in public schools. Here in the Bay we pay crazy taxes on our public school and they still fucking blow. One of the chief BLM and otherwise agitators that gets things violent is a middle school teacher at a Bay Area public school. She was on Tucker. He didn’t even say much the whole time, she just went complete bat shit.

Those are the people we’re paying not to work out here. Maybe we’re better off not having public schools now.

We had this family from Japan move into our neighborhood. The dad was an engineer. One of my other neighbors is also an engineer and we were bullshitting about schools and the Japanese guy went absolutely berserk over Commie Core. He ended up sending his family back to Japan because he was so pissed off about the stupidity of Commie Core math and he didn’t want his kids to be years behind the other Japanese kids in math when his assignment in the US ended. That dude was based as hell.

Oh, that flipping Common Core -- nobody can do anything with it (of value). Talk about confusing af. When it got instated a lot of us just went about teaching the curriculum the old fashioned way, yet still had to set aside class time to teach to the test because it now demanded CC. It was a great waste of time. Common Core can make the best of teachers and students into babbling idiots in 0 to 60. When asked about it, I've just said "no".

There were however those who insisted upon using it in the classroom with the expected results (teaching is often a cat rodeo at the best of times; this just made it worse).

So, now we have No Child Left Behind (ps. some of them need to be held back) and Common Core (aka. confusing af) and BLM bullshit (the local public schools are politely ignoring it, for now, until they are forced not to, but the colleges in the area are hiring anybody/everybody who promotes it and the local progressive groups are pushing hard on the school boards, so we'll see what happens). Is it a fucking mess? Why yes, yes it is.

I mean, I get it. I was working from home 90% of the time before the coof, and not having to sit in traffic every day is a pretty big upgrade to life. That shit was like 2 hours out of my day! But if my employer said “okay start coming back into the office or no more job” I wouldn’t lose my job over it. I used to sit in traffic listening to podcasts, I could do it again if I had to.

Teachers around here have been back to in-person work since fall; and online went active within a month of the lockdown last spring. Everyone was kind of happy to be back in class.

Of course, we be but simple rural folk around here...not the sophisticates of the Chicago Teacher's Union.

3
booblitchutz 3 points ago +3 / -0

Teachers are one of the groups that don’t have to pay social security. They get a pension instead that they have to work a number of years to vest. Same with pretty much all public sector employees. That’s why the public sector is full of people going through the motions, miserably marking time before their pension kicks in.

My dad is an engineer and the only reason I passed math tests was cuz of his tutoring me. You think you can learn algebra in a class of 35 kids who can't behave right before lunch? It's damn near impossible.

I grew up so poor in the Bronx that I would have to sleep in full winter gear in the winter and did my homework by candlelight many times. There was nothing lucky about my childhood. Other than a love of books instilled by my family that allowed me to educate myself into college level reading and comprehension by 5th grade.

They want to teach virtually from home. Remote learning.

Most teachers are liberals. Liberals believe the pandemic is killing off 300 billion people per day (Biden Math). Some are legitimately afraid to go to school and teach kids because of the coof. But I suspect most enjoy spending their time at home and being lazy "teaching" kids through a monitor.

thisisatestof2 10 points ago +10 / -0

I have a liberal Facebook “friend” who is a teacher in Florida. They’re not only afraid to go into school to teach, they are free to go outside their house. Recently they admitted that they spent almost 2 months without even sitting on their own lanai or taking a walk outside because they were so afraid that someone may be walking their dog or what not and not wearing a mask.

The only people who keep spouting this bs are ignorant non teachers. Every school district is forcing every teacher to work 14 hour days right now to teach both in person and online because retard parents won't take their kids to school no matter.

Have you ever heard your typical teacher talk about their job?

If you've talked to a teacher, you have, because it's all they talk about.

They are the whiniest bunch of employees in America, imo.

Their unions aren't doing them any favors, because my opinion of teachers pretty much couldn't get any lower.

There were a couple days after the Texas case was ignored by SCOTUS that a lot of people here were saying similar things you are now. Hell, there were people screaming about the steal since they stole the '18 mid-terms. Every time they were called a shill or doomer. Every one of those 'doomers' were right. Inaction at every level.

The only people who have actually done something were the patriots that showed up to the capitol and immediately afterward so many people here started calling them anti-fa. I even saw some saying Ashli fucking Babbit was anti-fa.

If they're sticking with virtual instruction, why doesn't the school seek better virtual talent?

Well, I know why. Public schools don't care about their students.

But if they did, thatd be the way to go. Going virtual gives you national recruiting access.

Given that student's performance has been abysmal this past year, they need all the help they can get.

ChikfilaFan 3 points ago +3 / -0

Some conservatives, I believe Greg Gutfield threw this out, even before state restrictions this past year leading to virtual learning...

I think there's something to the best of instructors across the country having classrooms of millions.

I do think the students going into a building and having supervision over their instruction is important. Parents depressed about the future of their country during lockdowns probably isn't a great educational environment.

There's a lot of ways education could be redone, talent better managed, but I'm just spitting ideas into an ether. Haha

Wow. We've had kids in class since September. A couple of our oldest teachers decided to retire in December, the rest of us have been fine. And I'm 63.

NOT ONE STUDENT OR TEACHER has gotten covid from an in school contact.

undergroundinpdx 5 points ago +5 / -0

Here's the thing, this is bipartisan. Everyone is sick of this retard world we're living in. Everyone wants to fucking go back go normal life. It's been about a year and by now most libs will look at the numbers of infected and might know those that were or even were themselves infected and realize that this is pretty fucking stupid.

That's just 40% that think they should be fired or suspended. There's another huge chunk that is more sympathetic and say something like "well let the ones that are worried stay home but we need to figure something out to get kids back into school now."

The reason teachers are being twats about this is because they're the foundation of the movement for big government. The dream they're pushing for is a socialist utopia where everyone gets what they want and the government waves a magic wand to make everything perfect for everyone. And the government making them go back to work when there's still a .002% chance they might die flies in the face of their ideal where a benevolent government lead by their "good" guys will make them work.

What's surprising is that more people aren't in favor of firing and/or suspending teachers that won't do their jobs. How many of you could tell your boss that you don't feel safe so you aren't going to go to work until the company gives you better equipment?

The Teachers unions have too much power. In NYC where I was born and raised and had my career ( Lucky now to have escaped) No teacher ever gets fired, if there is "an issue" the teacher is sent to to the escape room a place they have in Queens NY and gets to sit there all day doing nothing while getting paid . And if it's really egregious they sit there endlessly. months even until they can send the problem teacher into another school

40%? That seems low. Remember that teachers conveniently didn’t consider themselves “essential” so they refused to teach their students in person. All the while heading over to Walmart and the local grocery store. I guess the clerks were “safe” but the kids weren’t. Then they demanded that they be prioritized for the vaccine. In NY teachers can get the vaccine. The hypocrisy is so rich.
