Its a topic near and dear to my heart because not only do I have a good education under my belt (3 college degrees), but I am also a HS teacher. Some of you may be teachers, some may have children in the education system, and all of you will sooner or later :smileywink:, so this is a topic any one of you can discuss.
What do you think about education legislation out there like NCLB?
What about the current move to take the learning disabled ("ESE" or exceptional student ed) and push them out of sheltered classrooms with a specialized teacher and mainstream them with the higher academic learners?
What about teachers as a profession?
What do you think about classrooms having students who can't speak the language but are expected to learn academic content?
What about students who due to transiency and "social promotion" end up in HS who are illiterate and read at a 1st grade level?
