Respect Novermber 2 2019
 RespectMost teachers I know are extremely hard working, professional and dedicated to their students. Yes there are individuals who don't belong in the profession and methods should be applied to remove them. To blame the ills of the system on all teachers is an insult, injustice and a travesty. Often they are the forgotten heroes in our society. They spend many hours beyond their time in the school, at home planning, grading evaluating progress or "volunteering" for school activities or attending meetings required by the principle or school system. The NEA in a recent article using the 2018 Global Teacher Status Index studied how teachers are viewed world wide and showed where teachers stand as related to one another world wide. If we gave half the respect, financial rewards, publicity and recognition we give our athletes and actors, more children would strive to be a teacher as stated in the November of 2019 Education Week article Pay Them Respect and Teachers Will Come. We need to have the best and the brightest in the classroom.
