Billie I was being sarcastic. Things couldn't be worse.
I see the result of crappy parents and the school system having their hands tied behind their backs due to polices derived around such a modern approach.
If you don't believe me, come and spend some time in a high school and you will see the teachers are doing their best under less than ideal conditions. If not, shut the fuck up cause you have no idea what you are talking about.
Crappy teachers - yep.
It's like the Ministry of Works and those fat lazy bastards who lean on shovels all day. You can't fire their stupid asses cos the unions will trip balls. (This is the US I'm talking about eh, as that was the graph that was posted.)
Crappy parents - yep.
Studies have shown that:
- kids who perform better in schools are those who verbally interact more at home.
- kids who are properly fed do better in school
- kids who come from homes that value education do better in schools.
Parents need to cop a lot of the blame BUT the education system can still be fucked up as well, and YES teachers can be crappy.
"Hitting" kids . . . as a kid who was hit, it had minimal effect on me either for good or ill. Having to do shit like "community service" was a far more effective punishment.
Oddly enough, I was a student once so I see no need to shut the fuck up as I have as much experience as anyone else here. Also, I work in schools too - from elementary to high school
and I bet my school system is more fucked up than yours nar nar nar
