Progressive Teacher Pustule: Pay Your School Taxes and Shut Up

So you just have anecdotal evidence on Head Start in YOUR neck of the woods, in your city, in the neighborhood in which you teach? Is it possible that the Head Start program you have knowledge of doesn't have properly trained staff, etc... Perhaps the parents in that Head Start program did not reinforce what was learned? Anyway, I have never heard of any issue like this with Head Start. It is so easy to tell the kids in my school that have been through Head Start and those that haven't. and I continuously poke the belly of the education beast to see what kinds of pustules pop, and it never ceases to amaze us the types of low-lifes involved in our education system.

There are many great teachers – we work with a lot of them every day. But there are also a lot of people who don’t deserve the honor of teaching our children.

Whether it’s union-defended “pervy” teachers getting a slap on the wrist for very serious offenses, teachers doctoring student test scores for their own gain, or teachers union officials involved...
