Bill encourages his audience to be more supportive of teachers. ( Some rough language here and there)

I didnít read the article because I no longer am a fan. It is nice to know he can say kind and supportive things.

We used to see him live every year. Two years ago he went off on a rant and fat shamed overweight people. It was mean. And he repeated the rant on his tv show more than once. I lost my respect for him then.

I also donít agree with the ďbody-positiveĒ movement. I weigh 240 lbs and I admit Iím fat and need to exercise and change diet; I make no excuses. I know it isnít so black and white, but still.

I noticed that claps got thin at certain points.

I haven't really watched him before (but I do know who he is) but I LOVED his message. Especially this idea that the decline of society coincided with parents starting to side with their kids. It really was a mind shift.

I did not appreciate his comment about mom and the gardener
(and the random clapping was really annoying )

Other than this clip regarding teachers, I haven't watched his schtick. I deeply appreciate his sentiments about regarding our profession.

I watch him occasionally, when he has interesting guests. I appreciate that he tries to get people across the political spectrum.

I know he's mentioned a few times that his sister is a teacher (or was, I assume she is retired by now) and he's usually pretty supportive of the teaching profession.

I agree, his fat shaming isn't very nice. He can be judgmental when it comes to certain things.

I am shocked that Bill Maher was so supportive of teachers. I am thankful he said what he said especially about when parents started siding with children.

He is always supportive of teachers. He tells it like it is.

I firmly believe the parent pleasing fad has turned our schools into shells of their former selves.

The inmates are definitely in charge of the asylum these days.

When I was in school we'd be suspended for some of the junk kids pull now. And mom and dad would NOT come to the rescue.

but he is right on here! It was almost like he had been a teacher before. Parents united with teachers help kids learn and behave.

The 1 thing I disagree with though is I do not think parents are "appreciating" teachers more. If anything, I think parents are angry and blaming teachers.
Lately I have read and heard a lot about how parents are being expected to teach their own kids and want to be paid for it. Parents are not seeing what teachers are doing behind the scenes.
Parents are having to fix breakfast and lunch for their own kids. Some parents have not taught their kids to follow instructions/ given consequences and their kids refuse to do the work provided.
Some throw fits at home, but don't do it at school. If they do, the school used to have to try to deal with it.
I do have the greatest sympathy for working parents and parents who do not know how to help their kids academically. When parents do their job and teach kids to behave, they sure are easier to teach academics though.

At the university/college level, it's a similar story where students/parents don't realize how much extra work and infrastructure goes into moving classes to online and people are wanting tuition refunded. I get the feeling on the other side in both cases, but there is a ton of work in training and upgrading that needs to happen when schools move online. It's not any less expensive for school (K-college) to operate in many ways.
