To clarify what this means for those that have messaged me; let me attempt an analogy that might hit close to home. Let’s say your neighborhood (a school district) needs to turn in a pre-approved list of all the TV Shows you (teachers) and your neighbors (co-workers) will watch in one year. You have to take the time to list the show, creators, actors, and about what time of the year you’ll be watching it. Now, as the year goes by there is a NEW TV show you want to watch, (a new student needs different approach) but sorry, you can’t watch that because it wasn’t on the list the neighborhood turned in. Now let’s say you start to watch the Grammys and no one in the family likes it? (Your class is failing at the lesson because they are bored) SORRY, you’ll have to keep watching it or you’ll be fined because that’s what the neighborhood turned in. Now you think, this is ridiculous, the government would ever do that and that’s stupid. Well, that is what this bill is proposing for teachers. And if you don’t like what is being taught. Too bad, it was (or wasn’t) on the list. If this bill passes, I’m not doing it. And if I’m asked to leave. So be it. There is only so much one person can do at their job. If parents want to know what is being taught, then they can ask their kids. Get involved with your child. Attend school meetings (conferences), email or call the teacher. Look at their homework for Pete’s Sake!!! There are other ways than demanding more from teachers. Because we are asked to do everything but teach right now.
