The Battle Not Seen

A good friend of mine this week withdrew from the field of battle not in defeat, but to regroup and fight another day. She is an exceptional teacher, person and gift to the field of learning.

38 years she has taught in pubic schools. Part time as a Reading Intervention Specialist. Her passion is Reading and kids and watching them succeed and they do consistently! Regardless of testing, testing, and more testing!

She has as we all do battle the forces of medioctiy, incompetence, lack of leadership, no accountability, poor if any planning, abysmal communication.

Currently we rank in the bottom 5% of the state with our all important Test Scores, and have for several years.  The answer….you bet..more Testing and let’s even tie our Teacher Evaluation to our students scores…BRILLIANT.   Even so State Education come quickly and relieve us of this misery with even more incompetant misery as were are sure to be taken over by you as our leaders blindly leads us to the awaiting educational abyss.
