Really!? Do lawmakers in our state have nothing else to do? It really angers me that these so called "legislators" who pretend to have the better interest of the public at heart especially when making key decisions concerning education, have never stepped foot in the classroom! I would love to know how many of them have actually spent time in the classroom as teachers, or have spoken directly to teachers and administrators when doling out education bills. Honestly, based on their tireless punishment of the education system, they seem to think that teachers are lazy, unprofessional, and ungrateful. Being a teacher and coach I take great offense to SB 1202 and SB 1205. I have been a social studies teacher for 17 years and I can honestly say that I have NEVER cursed in the classroom, as I feel that it is clearly unprofessional and it sets a bad example for students to follow. If I expect the same out of my students then I should set the tone. Feb 19, 2012
