A Solution: fire all the bad teachers

by Betty

Fire all the bad teachers and all the problems with education will be solved.
All children will excel. All budgets will be balanced.

Right?

or

Maybe fire all the bad administrators.

Maybe fire all the bad school board members.

Maybe fire all the bad politicians.

Maybe fire all the bad parents.

Maybe take a more careful look at the problems.

Maybe look for a better solution to the problems.

Maybe take a look at the outdated and overloaded curriculum.

Maybe take a look at the diverse needs of the children in the classroom.
Each child is different.

or

Maybe it’s time to teach each child that anyone can succeed,
anyone can reach their goal.

If one truly believes one can, works hard, and persists in trying,
one will succeed.

Some things take longer.

Some things are harder,

but

All things are possible.

Never give up.

  1. Thank you Betty. I love this!

  2. Betty should still be teaching. Those children who were under her tutelage through the years were indeed lucky. When I was in elementary school I never once heard from a teacher that I could do anything if I tried or that I could succeed at anything I wanted to, with some hard work. I think all of Betty’s theories regarding education today and its shortcomings possess truth. All of her questions deserve serious thought in order to improve education in this country. Bravo, Betty!
