    How many of y'all are teachers? If you are, you'll understand this statement, if you aren't, just trust me - parents SUCK! I had to sit through a 90 rant about how perfect some woman's daughter is and how I'm not doing my job blah blah blah. Seriously, the current high school age generation has no clue what the hell personal responsibility is. I don't know what the hell happened to our country, but these f*&*ing parents these days believe what their kids say more than what a professional adult says. I don't know about any of y'all, but I told my parents some whoppers when I was a kid, anything to get out of gettin' in trouble. OK, done venting now, sometimes work just makes you pissed off, ya know?

    Become a teacher at a private school where you can punish the kids. I went to one for a short time, nobody was disrespectful or broke the rules.

    That is why I could never be a teacher. Unless sending home a permission slip to smack their kids on the first day is legal?

    I'd settle for a single day, maybe toward the end of the year, when I could without penalty say exactly what I wanted to each kid. Something along the lines of "you're a little lying weasel of a punk". What happened to the good old days of dunce caps and rapping knuckles with a ruler?

    Most unappreciated position out there IMO. And unfortunately the lack of compensation/benefits/good workplace is diluting the talent pool and selling our future (all of us, not just the kids) short.

    products of the nanny state mentality.
    Hey teacher-man YOU OWE ME!! With your PHAT paycheck and all that time off! Don't you know anyone can do your job?

    I am a teacher - and I can certainly say that many students are inept by choice. However the culture they are inculcated with demands they learn not by effort and responsibility, rather by manipulation and deceit. We see time and again that hard work will not merit reward, but lying, cheating, and clandestine politics provides one with a high quality of life. If Emmerson were alive today, he might not say "Build a better mousetrap ", but "Tell a better fib".

    Teachers are at the very pulse of the future and although students might not excel at academics, they are not idiots and can see full well what works in this world; the teacher has the task of measuring the promise of such a future.

    I measure it low.
    The cracking of our society has resulted in a fissure, a rift, created by perverse leadership and overt consumerism. Don't feel too alone, I'm extremely cynical about the farce of public education. Just ride it out until you have a heart attack-

    Sssshhhh - I think I hear "hope" and "promise" laughing at us all.

    Just got home from school myself, and I might not write such diatribe on a Sunday morning. Then again...

    I taught for three years and must say switching careers this year was the best move I ever made. The amount of time spent at school, practice, games- makes even a decent sized salary seem minute when you break it down. I'm now working as an office administrator for a construction company in a refinery- and I love it! Just goes to show you that it's better to leave what makes you unhappy and find something that you actually enjoy!

    Every student needs a shock collar and the teacher should have the remote.

    My parents only get involved when there is a serious problem with one of the teachers.


    Like my Credit Recovery teacher literally has been harrassing me. When I ask anyother teacher to help me, she tells me to be quiet :confused: and among others bizarre things.

    I am a great student according to my teachers now and in the past. I respect my teachers, never talk back, or cause trouble. I can be "out there" when we are just chilling. But when I pay attention, I do. I usually do mess around with them just for them to know I'm in their class, but nothing to where I get on their nerves or get into trouble about it.

    I get a weird feeling in my gut even when a buddy of mine gets in trouble. I just dont like it.

    Same goes for my parents. I never back talk, cuss at them, or cause trouble.

    I found an interesting item when going through my deceased Grandmothers belongings not long ago. It was her paddle from the days (long ago) when she was a high school English teacher in Alpine, Texas. The paddle had inscribed on it, "instructions for use: Apply generously to the seat of learning." It was a reminder to me of how much times have changed, not always for the better, and just how disrespectful some of the kids of my generation can be.
