Retired teacher’s letter to parents is hailed by thousands – do you agree?

Almost everyone has an opinion about child care, education, and the educational system.

In comparison to students abroad, American students are currently far behind. Why?To finally express her viewpoint, a retired teacher penned this letter to the local newspaper.

I felt it was very on point, but please read it for yourself and let us know if you disagree or not!

“As a retired teacher, I am sick of people who know nothing about public schools or have not been in a classroom recently deciding how to fix our education system.

The teachers are not the problem! Parents are the problem! They are not teaching their children manners, respect or even general knowledge of how to get along with others.

The children come to school in shoes that cost more than the teacher’s entire outfit, but have no pencil or paper. Who provides them? The teachers often provide them out of their own pockets.

When you look at schools that are “failing,” look at the parents and students. Do parents come to parent nights? Do they talk with teachers regularly? Do they make sure their children are prepared by having the necessary supplies? Do they make sure their children do their homework?

Do they have working telephone numbers? Do the students take notes in class? Do they do their homework? Do the students listen in class, or are they the sources of class disruptions?

When you look at these factors, you will see that it is not schools that are failing but the parents. Teachers cannot do their jobs and the parents’ job. Until parent step up and do their job, nothing is going to get better!”

Do you agree with this former teacher’s opinions?

Please help us share this on Facebook if you do!
