People! This is the teaching reality today! I have been a teacher for 17 years, and for all the years I have been in public education (6), everything is based on DATA. You are right! It's despicable. Do something about it! Teachers have no say in the matter. It all comes from administration, who gets it from the district, who gets it from the state, who gets it from the federal government. It makes me sick, but if I want to keep my job, then I'll do what I'm told. Seriously, your VOTE matters. Please help us by speaking up not only with ballots, but at school board meetings and by writing state and federal senators and representatives. Without people standing up for what is right, children will be just numbers. It is NOT the teachers' fault for trying to keep their jobs.
