Contemplate this with me.
My father (A teacher) has the same income as the local truck drivers.
Truck drivers. You heard me correctly.
In America, we take the education of our children just as seriously as we take delivering Pepsi to your local Wal Mart. Isn't this a great country to be born in?
Teachers are critical for today's society, and play a critical rule on our future child. Education is extremely important in order to be successful and a productive member of society. My belief is that teachers are extremely undervalued, and should get more support and money. Kids are our future, therefore they deserve the best quality education that can get and utilize.
Our teachers mold our children from the time they are five until the day they hit eighteen. Even after that, the colleges continue to teach. They are not given the credit they deserve. They are severely underpaid, they are not respected, and parents tend to yell and scream at them if they scold their children. It is a thankless job and yet they still continue to teach our children.
