Amen, Josh Phillips. I 100 percent agree with everything you said in your, â€œDescent into the age of entitlementâ€ article. Too many times, I run into situations where the younger generations have the â€œyou owe meâ€ attitude.
All the things you mentioned about education are driving good, down-to-earth teachers out of our educational systems.
My wife spent five years here at CSU getting her degree in English, has taught within a Colorado school district for 10 years and is a fourth generation teacher. All the changes within public education and more pressure being put on the teachers through the â€œno failâ€ grading system are causing these teachers to abandon education.
They are being asked to spend more time with students that donâ€™t care whether they pass or fail instead of concentrating on the ones that want to learn and better themselves.
Our public education system is in a sad state of affairs. More parents are relying on teachers to teach their children morals and responsibilities when it should be the parents teaching these ideals.
Thank you for a wonderful read and hopefully more people feel the same as you and I and will start to make a change.
