Why, oh why, did I have to check my email?

One of my besties just sent me a link to this article. VERY interesting, yet infuriating, reading.

Why so much disrespect toward teachers?

Yes, I guess I am also accountable for the first 5 years of life that these kids did not learn a thing- when will parents be held accountable for being a partner in their child's learning?? - I read in disgust an article in which a mother wrote about how appalled she was when she listened to her 4th grader read aloud..."what a crime my child reads like a first grader," she wrote! Where have you been for the past 9 years lady?! And why have you not heard your child read aloud??

Seems like I haven't blogged in ages. What is said here about Chicago is an echo of what is going on in my district. I think for the most part, it's national. I'll be looing to see what it looks like in 10 years, because for all the rhetoric about improving education, they are making HUGE short sighted mistakes and it WILL come back to bite them
