When are we going to make students responsible for their learning. When are we going to make parents responsible for their kids actions. Yes, there are a couple rotten apples in teaching but most of us do kill ourselves to teach and make sure our students learn what they need to. We can do all we can but until students take responsibility and the patents make their kids responsible foot school work, nothing will change. I'm offended when people assume we are doing nothing. In still waiting to see these call studies include my classroom. In a very passionate teacher that works very hard to deliver a lessons that makes sense and that include a connection to real life applications to have a student tell me that since he does not need the class to graduate,he's doing nothing, or have to wait for students to put their sell phones away because we are not allowed to take them from them. Lately when I try communicating with patents they get mad because we are calling them to talk about their kids behavior.
Again, until patents, teachers, administration and the community work together to address these issues nothing will change. We are in this together and teachers alone are NOT the only issue here.
