NOT ALL teachers don’t have it easy, that’s for sure. Don’t get me wrong, we have a LOT of fun and LOVE our kids, YOUR kids.
That being said, it also comes with stress (just like any other job) because we know the importance of education. So it extremely bothers me when I see a post about a (possibly frustrated) teacher who rants about why children are forced to go to school.
How they need to give the children/teens a passing mark even if they don’t bother going to class or studying.
Private or public, the importance of the work we do is the same isn’t it?
There must be something wrong with the system if teachers get jaded to the point that they actually believe this nonsense of “the world can’t be full of engineers and lawyers…”
“Some must be janitors, messengers, carpenters, construction workers, street sweepers…to fill in some job orders needed in our society.”
Aren’t we, the teachers, parents and adults supposed to motivate our children to want to work hard and aim high?
Or do I belong to the group of idealists who still believe that they can make a difference in the lives of their students?
Do we really “LET THEM DROP OUT. LET THEM FAIL. LET THEM LEARN.”?
What bothered me the most is that the post had
ONE THOUSAND LIKES, and 220 comments,
most of which where agreeing with the frustrated teacher.
One thousand likes.
