Our schools stink – ask anyone. One of the most amusing things I continue to hear for our Teachers in Hawaii is “our children first”.
So, a few days ago 67% of those SAME teachers that say “our children first” voted against the new contract BECAUSE they don’t like the idea of being evaluated and having raises condition awarded on/for their lackluster performance when it comes to educating the children under their care.
Just how does that fit in to the “CHILDREN FIRST” logic they are spouting if I might inquire?
How about we just fire the 67% and hire some new blood (people) that actually want to work and do the job of teaching our kids! There are lots of teachers out there that would love to be working and more than happy to listen and work to bring our schools up to a standard to be proud of.
The first question my wife asked when she heard about he vote was, “what happened to ‘it’s all about the students’?” for which I had no answer.
My question is – why aren’t parents jumping on the UNION or the TEACHERS and demanding that they get their act together! Why aren’t they doing the job they are PAID to do? Why is the State on the verge of loosing $75 Million in Federal funds that could help us get back on track?
Any answers/excuses out there that WON’T make us LAUGH?
Come on people – everyone knows that we already have one of the worst school systems in America and you (our teachers) claim to be PROUD of the fact that our Prez is “from Hawaii” (a fact that doesn’t do anything for me but that’s for another blog) so why aren’t you doing the JOB of getting Hawaii OUT of the TOILET when it comes to education and back in the game?
Time to get it together and DO SOMETHING ABOUT OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM! Think about it!
This is NOT my idea of caring for the kids:
