24. Are you serious?!

As an "older" teacher, I resent that remark intensely.

The truth is that CC and the new evaluation systems are being used to force veteran teachers-- with memories of what public education used to be-- out to pasture. Their goal is to hire a bunch of lower-paid newbie-bots who are so grateful to have a job that they will obediently jump through Gates' (et al.) hoops. The younger principals, as "True Believers," are at the forefront of this "coup".

I thank God that I still have a pension in place and can finally retire, but I really feel for the teachers in their 40s and early 50s who are pedaling as fast as they can to keep up and are being run over by the corporatists. And most of them don't even realize what is being done to them yet. But they will find out in the next couple of years.

I'm glad you could afford law school as an alternative.
