Retired Teacher’s Heartfelt Letter to Parents Resonates with Thousands – Share Your Thoughts?

“Childcare, Education, and the U.S. Educational System: A Matter of Public Opinion

American students are lagging behind their international peers, but why is that the case? A retired teacher decided to address this question by writing a letter to the local newspaper.

Take a look and share your thoughts – do you agree or disagree?”

The teacher wrote:

“As a retired teacher, I am sick of people who know nothing about public schools or have not been in a classroom recently deciding how to fix our education system.

The teachers are not the problem! Parents are the problem! They are not teaching their children manners, respect or even general knowledge of how to get along with others.

The children come to school in shoes that cost more than the teacher’s entire outfit, but have no pencil or paper. Who provides them? The teachers often provide them out of their own pockets.

When you look at schools that are “failing,” look at the parents and students. Do parents come to parent nights? Do they talk with teachers regularly? Do they make sure their children are prepared by having the necessary supplies? Do they make sure their children do their homework?

Do they have working telephone numbers? Do the students take notes in class? Do they do their homework? Do the students listen in class, or are they the sources of class disruptions? 

When you look at these factors, you will see that it is not schools that are failing but the parents. Teachers cannot do their jobs and the parents’ job. Until parent step up and do their job, nothing is going to get better!”
