Nothing is said to parents that produces results, you can't force a child to learn and yet it's all on the teacher. Meanwhile there are terrible teachers out there giving everyone else a bad name & nothing is done about them; they just get shuffled into another classroom or somewhere else. Haven't heard about those NYC rubber rooms in a while, but I'm willing to bet they still exist! In the end joining the teaching profession just doesn't seem worth it. Long hours, wild children, unresponsive parents and blame for everything. You could offer me over a million and I still wouldn't take a public school teaching job. I'd rather prefer to become one of those smart essay writers
