sebe, your assessment is spot on.
Our public school teachers are burdened with far too much administration and reporting mostly imposed on them by Federal authorities and some by the State.
I think we need to get back closer to the basics.
@tot/seb-how do we get back to the basics? I also believe it takes a village to raise a child. I spend most of my days advocating for the poor, illiterate and abused.
It's hard to prepare a child for success when their parents can't read or write. We need more programs to address literacy in the home.
Host literacy and GED classes in the neighborhoods with low literacy rates. We cant wait on them to come to us-we need to reach out to them. If we can set up a building to pass out free lunch we can use that same building to facilitate class.
I don't think were doing enough in Liberty County to help at risk populations. I see too many young women and men settling for 2 dollar rent or hanging out at the gazebo by the Coastal bank instead of improving their employment skills or trying to find employment.
