Do you ever get frustrated by today’s education system? Well one thing you can do to help, is let teachers do their job and back them up while they do it! Yes, you read that correctly. If you don’t believe me, after all, I’m no teacher, go read this article: http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/06/living/teachers-want-to-tell-parents/index.html It’s written by Ron Clark, an award-winning teacher. After you read it, pass it on to your sister, your brother, your cousin and your friend. Then pass it to your momma and your grandparents, your aunt and your book club. Have them pass it on to all of their family, friends and church. Who knows? We may just end up with smarter kids!
Do your kids have teachers you are happy with? Let them know it! Write them a thank you letter! Let them know how much you appreciate all the hard work they do for your child or grandchild each day. It may be the very first time anyone ever thanked them. I may make their day. You may make them decide to give it another year as a teacher. You never know. Teachers work damn hard for little pay. They shape the futures of our children every day. They deserve to be acknowledged — by all of us.
