I cannot imagine why anyone would want to go into teaching these days. I have a friend from a small town in Oregon who became a teacher. She came from a family of teachers. She could not get a job in her small town and had to move to Portland. They put her in a black inner city school and she quit after one year. Said she would never teach again. It was just too dangerous. I hope someone closes down the Department of Education and they turn it back to the States. The more local control that there is in the schools, the better they are. That way Washington D.C can screw up their own schools but not those in the rest of the country.
