Any teachers here?
So, I’m kind of irked to say the least right now. My mom just got back from work; she’s an elem teacher.
Right now, the high school has 33 teachers/aids and half of the students that the elem does. The middle school has 20, but still half the kids of the elementary. Right now, the elementary has 27 teachers/aids and over twice as many kids.
And, instead of, say cutting from the sports program or something in the high school, the super intendent wants to fire some of the elementary teachers. No big deal, it’s not like they aren’t on their bare bones or anything.
I know someone might get laid off anyway, whether or not they hold off a year and don’t get the new track, but really? I know this might not seem like much to some, but it really makes me mad. Like, everyone thinks elementary is a joke. My mom gets kids that, at age 8, can’t even spell their own name, and has to get them ready for math and science and everything else.
Any thoughts on this? I know I’m pretty biased, so I want to know if I’m getting my feathers ruffled over nothing.
