        Hasn't the GOP managed to end voting for college students? I mean, young and smart -- talk about a Venn diagram of people they want to disenfranchise.

              • As I said the last time this came up, I honestly dont have much of an issue with the Flo(R)ida plan if the vet passes the skills test and are making progress towards their degree. They should have to take a psych eval too though.

                  So we don't need teachers to have taken any training in, you know, teaching?

                    I know people who taught with less training. (in supposedly smarter states) And as a teacher I know trained teachers who are worthless.

                    Look in an ideal world this wouldn't happen but when there are shortages even in Blue States like mine something needs to be done. We either fill the positions or public schools go under. Throwing a bone to vets is not the worst of all options here and I will take it over the alternatives that DeathSantis could put in place.

                    Of course if school districts weren't underfunded and teachers paid commensurate with the job they do none of this would be an issue anyways. But people just don't like paying taxes so...

                      The dumbest thing ever written on this board will not be by a Republican.

                      That is remarkable.

                      If this is what you truly think I suggest you are an incomparably terrible teacher who should find another line of work.

                            • Both of my kids got into exam schools. Not sure what I'd have done if I lived in Shytbird, FL.

                                You know what I had a much longer rant written that was going to prove your whole stupid premise wrong, but I wont. How about for once you back off and just accept that your limited experience in the world doesn't mean you can speak for everyone about everything mmmkay?

                                I like how you even contradict yourself within your three lines. So I am wrong for saying some teachers are bad, but you then say I am a bad teacher if I think that. That is Trumpian level circular logic.

                                My girlfriend, who has been a teacher for longer than I have, is very chummy with the local union head. If you heard the stories that I hear you would walk back literally every word you just said. (this is not hyperbole btw...I could tell you stories that would make you face palm faster than if you read a post by Sicatoka) Teachers with decades of experience who have no interest in the job, the students or even learning, new teachers that have degrees well in advance of mine who can barely string sentences together let alone a coherent lesson plan, teachers so inept and worthless even the union wishes they would lose their job but can't allow it to happen. And this isn't in Childrapist, OH or LowIQville, FL this is in a pretty decent district in a rather wealthy (and Blue!) cluster of suburbs.

                                Is the percentage high? No. But it is more than you think. Part of that is on the education they get to get their license, part of it is the environment they are put in. (inability to discipline is becoming a huge issue here) Part of it is that these people didn't get into teaching for altruistic reasons, or because they enjoy helping kids learn as academics, but for other reasons so they do less than what would be considered the minimum. The fact that the good teachers are quitting en masse is creating a vacuum also that is making it worse.

                                But hey what would I know, I am only a teacher, whose best friend is a (now former) teacher, who lives with a teacher who is the daughter of 2 teachers.
