This Got Me Heated!
My high school English teacher posted this on Facebook. I wanted to share my response with you as we’ll. I hope I wasn’t too hard on her. Here is what I said:
Bill Maher is a wackadoodle, but he is right about parental involvement a child’s education. Although parents need to be more active in their children’s lives, we can’t blame them for the crumbling education system. California teachers tell their new students every year not to write in the books and not to talk during class. I didn’t learn how to read until I took reading 81 at Rcc after my brain hemorrhage!! In that class I learned a new word only avid students get to learn in public school. The word, annotate! What, I’m supposed to write notes in the margins of my books as I’m reading? Isn’t that against the rule?? C’mon Mrs. Clazie, teach your students how it really is in college! My mom could only teach me good Christian morals. She worked three jobs to support my brother and me. My mom didn’t go to college. Teachers have gone through and succeeded college, so they should be the the ones to correct the system!
