Come to think of it, when you get wild, strange stuff like this happening, the source is always a place with a LOT of "administrators" in the system
or higher up people in the state department (of education) and basically just a bunch of people who don't really have much to do so they create stuff
to do. It's THOSE people in education that sit up on their self-proclaimed pedastals and dictate how the rest of the world should behave.
Look back at the one-room schoolhouse. The teachers there were the teacher, the principal, the custodian, the secretary, EVERYTHING. They didn't have
a central office with more people than the individual schools in their area to sit around and make up ideas all day and lose touch with actual people
It's not just bigger government in general that we should start making changes in. People in their own communities can step up and get rid of all the
cushy extra positions that just hog up funding and resources and take away from the kids.
The teachers don't speak up because that's the first group that the "evil overloards" come down on. They don't speak up because they don't want
to come in to a hostile workplace everyday, they don't want to go on the job hunt again, they don't want to make their lives miserable. They also
know that the second group in the line of things would be the children and most of the teachers are there to protect the children, to teach them, to
nurture them, etc and they'd rather take the brunt themselves than have it inflicted on the kids.
If we want a smaller government, more privacy and a good education for our children, maybe it's time to make the "smaller government" campaign a
grass roots campain and work from the bottom up. Step up and speak out about so many administrators, secretaries of this and secretaries of that and
get rid of all the extra offices and put the majority of our public school funding exactly where it belongs, in the classroom.
