During the hour-long presentation, administrators spoke briefly about their expectations of the students and welcomed them into their "open door" policy. Department heads also spoke briefly to parents on required and elective classes for students.
Mildly Interesting welcomes Taran Killam to discuss Betty White mixed media art, Rams football and alien sex, and he gets personal by explaining how he works through white privilege by playing Dungeons & Dragons and why he likes Jar Jar. You can see him in the film Night School and the ABC series Single Parents, but this is the only place you can catch Taran in a very special musical moment.
Elderly Teacher’s Letter Is Hailed By Thousands – Do You Agree?
Lisa Roberson is a retired teacher. She decided to write a letter to the newspaper about teachers, parents and students. She never thought in thousand years that so many people were going to read it and share it….
The letter, written by Lisa Roberson, reads:
As a retired teacher, I am sick of people who know nothing about public schools or have not been in a class-room 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 a 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 the 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 parents step up and do their job, nothing is going to get better!
Do you agree with this teacher? SHARE if you do…
