I think that teachers aren't involved makes the movie (which of course I haven't seen yet) to be biased.

A trick I learned awhile ago, click on the print link and it often doesn't really print but removes the ads and multiple pages.

Totally agree, but put all the blame on them and don't let them speak.

It's not just about the teachers teaching children, it's also about students who want to learn and parents who support and encourage both.

There may be teachers involved, but I believe it is no public school teachers. And the whole subject is the awfulness of our public schools, soooooooo I don't know what else to call this movie--of course without seeing it. lol.

I agree there are good & bad public & private.

That's a big part of it, the education and parent support/non support. Some kids don't do their home work for weeks & weeks, no one is checking on them or making sure it gets done, for example.

What is not the information in the link? I did not read the entire thing yet, but now you have taught me a little trick to make it much easier to do just that.

ETA.

My comment was not related to children who want to learn and parents who encourage it.

I was simply saying that yes, i expect teachers to do their jobs even if it may difficult. I also expect parents to be involved in the child acedemics ect for the child to be successful ...but Iam not the "school teacher" in my childs education, had i wanted to do this i would not have sent them to school, i would have homeschooled

Since second grade, the students at my boy's school have changed classrooms for math. In general there have been 80 kids and 3 general ed teacher and one special ed teacher. So there are 4 math classes based on a pretest at the beginning of each section. Some years, the resource teacher takes another class- so there are 5 classes to spread out the students. As a result, the teachers does not have quite the spread of need in each class. They also do this starting in 3rd grade for the other core subjects.
