So…….after I finished reading the news story in my previous post, this sad story comes across my news feed from a Shelby County educator. Her concerns and frustrations are shared by teachers all across the country. Her concerns and challenges are parallel to many, many other educators nationwide. It is sad and sickening to say the least!!!
SCHOOL BUILDING CONDITIONS MATTER!
ASBESTOS IS A HAZARD!
CLEANLINESS OF AIR DUCTS MATTER!
HEAT IN THE WINTER IS A MUST HAVE!
AIR CONDITIONING IN THE SUMMER AND SPRING IS A MUST HAVE!
TEACHER PAY MUST INCREASE!
STUDENTS AND TEACHERS’ NEEDS MUST COME FIRST!
WE MUST STOP LEGISLATING MANDATES THAT ARE UNFUNDED AND DO NO GOOD!
WE MUST LISTEN TO OUR TEACHERS AND START CARING!
We should all be ashamed that we have allowed things to get to this point! It’s time for change!!
