The answer to this question is no. Teachers were not involved in the writing of...

Even

In the real world employees get days or weeks of training. A boss doesnít just throw them out there and say work. My sister in law was going back to a job that she had done for years after being gone...

Blaming teachers

Is easy. Itís been happening for at least 20 years now. It really all started with no child left behind. Politicians canít point the finger at the real ones who have the most influence in a childís...

My mom always said

Stack Ďem deep. Teach Ďem cheap.

Unfortunately I think a lot of districts have this idea. They are on tight budgets and veteran teachers are expensive. So put 30+ kids in a class with a first year...

So

My sister in law used to say she wanted to die during PD or a staff meeting. The transition wouldnít be noticeable. LOL

I donít know what happened

At least

Itís not snow. My dad posted pictures of the dusting of snow they got last night. I agree about the rain. An occasional rainy day in the summer is nice but nonstop gets old really fast.
