[QUOTE=palmetto defender;4505779]I never had a decorated classroom. Is it really necesary?
A school without chalk and erasers? Perhaps NYC is not as CIVILIZED as SC after all, eh?
And what is a masters degree plus 30? Is that a PHd? I never heard of a masters plus 30. What are the 30 credit in?
Imagine. Requiring continuing education. Sort of like people in business, CPAs, doctors, lawyers. All that and absolutely ZERO accountability. No wonder there are 27 countries in the world with better education. (See the Exxon TV ad).[/QUOTE]
yes, decorated classrooms are required and it MUST change every few weeks, dont and the teacher is written up by administrators. Things like backing paper on bulletin boards, borders, inspirational posters, crates, folders, chalk, erasers, markers, pens, paper, etc all paid out of pocket.
Master's degree plus 30 graduate credits, most get a second masters.
And yes, teachers are more important. They are the ones who have a first hand account and affect on every career. Without teachers there are no other careers. I dont know ONE teacher that went into it for "the money." Mostly because up until only a few years ago they were GROSSLY under paid. Only now that the corporate world screwed everything up do they want to blame the teachers and take back the little that was given. Just laughable.
Maybe if Americans in the so called "real world" gave teachers half the credit and respect they do in other countries their children would do the same and there would be no reason catch up to their scores.....
