im sorry, but you will never convince me that a troop, with no credentials, a simple high school diploma, is now somehow just as qualified as a
teach with a masters degree.
Neither will anyone convince me of that. You apparently didn't read my post thoroughly. No matter, I can rephrase what I said here:
The lifetime experiences of someone who has worked outside the educational system will be of great benefit to teaching our youth.
Part of the
problem is that our educational system is separated from the reality of performing a real-life job, and does not therefore perform as well as it
should. This experience in reality would have even more pronounced benefits in the higher grades and in secondary education (college, vocational,
Every person who wants to become a teacher after years of experience should definitely pass all the required higher education courses and
certifications that any teacher today must pass. I am simply stating that the experiences of considering a teaching career later in life would benefit
the children. From the article
Troops-to-Teachers provides Referral Assistance and Placement services to military personnel interested in beginning a second career in public
education as a teacher. The DANTES Troops-to-Teachers office will help applicants identify teacher certification requirements, programs leading to
and employment opportunities.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
That sounds like nothing more than a program to help those who have served in the military (which by definition includes many high-tech fields) to
make a smoother transition into a career as a teacher. No certifications are being ignored, and no education requirements are being bypassed.
You want to give troops the job as teacher to a troop to even political bias. Sickening that you would use the education system to try and help
out the republicans.
Ah, perhaps you did read my posts. Are you unaware that there is a left-wing bias in many of our schools already? Are you OK with this, now that you
have been told of it?
I did not endorse introducing political leans into the educational system. I stated it as a potential reason for the program, and mentioned that it
has already been happening on the other side. You, on the other hand, were no doubt aware of the left-leaning bias that exists, and are now crying
"foul" because you don't want to lose that advantage.
I would say your obvious agenda to maintain (and extend?) the present bias in our school systems is what is sickening. I can think of no other reason
anyone with your record of debating would jump so harshly at an observation.
Pardon me, your bias is showing...
