2 of my friends that I grew up with are teachers here in ny they seem to like their job because they always post about how much they love their kids on ig I don’t think I could see myself being a teacher tho
NYC one of the best places in the country for teaching salaries. It's really competitive out there because of how many kids and schools there are out there. Teachers stay in demand, especially good ones.

Yep i remember this video, if that was my kid I woulda gave that man a job after he got fired and id have him over for dinner and have him sit right next to my son. My dad didnt accept disrespecting adults, unfortunately there are a lot of sh*tty parents out there.
Yeah I didn't blame him at all for what he did. You right too about the parents. They don't do their job of showing them how to act and just be happy to drop them off at school so somebody else has to deal with it

My formal observation rubric at my former school had like 12 categories, ranging from the quality of my questions, my lesson pacing, the percentage of students following my directions, my ability to identify and correct misbehaviors, the percentage of students who mastered that days objective, the "joy" of my classroom, and the percentage of students who were able to complete all the class work prior to the exit ticket.

And we were observed 5 times a year.
Do you think that helped ensure their students were receiving adequate education? How do you think this system affected the workload of the teachers?

The rubric could tell who was or wasn't a good teacher. Your raise was also tied to your final score, which 50% of which was based on your observation score.

I do think it motivated teachers to implement the tools and skills we were taught to be more effective teachers. The rubric made it so that you couldn't just "flip a switch" and finesse a good score. You actually have to put in the work everyday, otherwise two tough kids will fu*k up your whole score.

The rubric didn't create extra work for teachers. It was an extremely effective feedback tool.

It’s the post Information Age. Teach kids how to pull quality / verifiable information from the internet. If they can navigate that, they just need good influences and quality family teachings to become successful humans.
Na i disagree I’m a firm believer of the old saying that “it takes a whole village to raise a child”
Your only thinking about your children I’m thinking about the betterment of all children across the country a lot of kids aren’t gonna b so lucky to have parents like me and you... I’m thinking about those kids... teachers are not obsolete... as a team... as a country we are only as good as our weakest links...
When two army’s go to battle... one army could have the more badass soldiers but they can’t work good together... the other army mayb their soldiers aren’t better overall like the other army but they know how to work as a team better than the other army... the army that works better as a team gonna crush the other army with better soldiers despite it being overall more talented...

I give teachers credit, the gotta deal with the sh*tty boxden youth all fu*king day id probably lay a kid out day 1.


Sidenote: Highschools need to be more work prep than bullsh*t history classes, schools fail and student debt is so high because schools dont make oppurtunities known thry just push college. I wouldn't have even wasted my year in college if you told .e i could make the same amount in sales or trade job.
Hell first 2 years of college is material you've seen before. They try to sell college as it helps you get an one income job but hell the bachelor's degree is the new HS degree. HS kids ought to be exposed to stuff like getting IT certifications, how to start your own business, how to network/write a resume/cover letter, etc.

Teachers = underpaid babysitters teaching false facts.

School is a hell of a business motto though, they are federally funded and generate $80 per kid.

As a teacher in a upscale school in ny I gotta say for me the job is demanding but the pay and benefits are great.

I couldn’t imagine doing the amount of work I do for no 30,000 or 40,000

Teachers are underpaid and education is underfunded for a reason. The powerbrokers don't want people who can think: they want slaves.

So when you get a real fu*king teacher in your child's life: thank them.
This is truer than people realize. Back in the day the most available jobs were a*sembly type jobs. So they taught kids to sit for hours straight doing menial tasks. Now the jobs are dynamic, need more creativity and lots of self directed thinking and you can see good teachers adjusting.

School system needs an overhaul

Teachers do deserve more

My plan would b increase pay for teachers but make the job more demanding.

This will bring in highly skilled educators and make the current roster b more productive
What are the demands of an educator now? I’m pretty sure you have no idea.

Make the job more demanding...do you think teachers get reimbursed for buying schools supplies when parents don’t provide them? Where do you think classroom resources come from when school districts are low on funds? Do you think the school actually pays teachers for the hours they spend after school grading, prepping, and mentoring? Do you think the stress of dealing with snobbish kids who’ve never been told no or bad a*s kids who don’t hear no isn’t demanding enough? Maybe it’s the dealing with parents who only show up at the end of the quarter to ask why I gave their child an F that isn’t demanding. No I know what it is, the parents who want extra consideration and easier grading all year that are the cake walks. Never mind the paperwork and meetings.

Your plan to revamp the education system should start with becoming an educator and finding out how demanding the job is and how low the pay is.

We don’t support educators or the school system and wonder why prisons are over crowded.

Right! I had a roommate who was a teacher. They have to deal with a lot of politics and got long hours of lesson planning and grading papers at home.

I feel you I just see things diff. “Those kids” that you refer to aren’t being helped by the system as it is now. Teachers mostly just teach the book and push people through the system. They rarely are actually teaching and impacting people’s lives.

Not to shoot at teachers because I know there is a ton of great ones that have impacted me big time. I say keep those who want to be advisors and mentors to people’s learning journey, but the concept of teachers/classrooms/schools/curriculum/state tests is so broken. They are funneling people into college (regardless of it makes sense) and not teaching them how to survive out here.

Should destroy and rebuild the whole system IMO.

Def agree with the “it takes a village” concept, just don’t think teachers as currently defined in most schools are a value-add to that process.

You can't discipline a child in school how it used to be. Then parents are raising little fu*king demons who have no respect for anything or anybody. So a mf trying to teach children who have no respect and have learned disregard for substance from their parents, would either want to quit or shoot somebody

Salaries are probably lower than what they should be, but teachers have strong job security and good pensions. Additionally, it's not like these teachers are really excellent and deserve higher wages. There's blame to be given on both sides.

I taught a college course in my field, was easiest check I ever made. I'm sure kids are tougher to deal with but you get like a 3rd of the year off. Why are they overworked?
