Today as I was reading about all of the things going on in education...I came upon a very interesting title which caught my eye. Once I give you the title you will understand why it got my attention so quickly!
I actually debated writing on this book and author as no doubt this will help spark his sales however, he does make a good point about what is happening in our schools today. This is about the growing problem of corruption and racism in our inner city schools.
A rabbi has written a book about how our education is declining and we need to do something to save our nation's youth that is, if we really care about them. They are a group in California who are looking for people who are ready for LESS hope and change and more who are ready to keep our faith and survive with our values intact.
Teachers nowadays are loathe to reinforce values that have etched their way into American culture by our founding fathers, nor are they willing to risk revealing the consequences of those values that will guarantee our freedom in tomorrow's war of ideas and assaults upon our country.
We are losing our teachers and in fact, statistics say that the average life of a teacher is seven years. When you talk to these teacher drop-outs, it's not the money (what money?) that bothers them; it's the total lack of administrative support, parental backing, community indifference, and lack of validation toward their professionalism that drives them away.
So, are you still asking yourself what is this title that got my attention...well it is sure to catch yours as well......."Kill the Teacher". Of course I am not sure if readily agree with the title of this book but this is a real meeting about to take place in California on the 21st of January and they are looking to break the silence, adopt a radical, non-union stance in order to save our youth.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, they are challenging all teachers to come out and be at this meeting! They are promising a no-nonsense program in a one-of-a-kind seminar...while one may not agree with the seminar; I have to ask myself how many more teachers out there have gone through this very same thing and have a similar story.
The shocking news? This one is backed not only by the Rabbi who wrote the book and has done the study but he has gained the support of Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and the Californian Republic Assembly.
If you do go to this one, please write me and let me know what you think, I would love to know and even if you don't go. I would like to hear your story...are you the victim of "Kill the Teacher"?
