Since I am married to a teacher who retired in June following the last school term, I read this guest column in The News-Sentinel on Friday, October 7, with great interest. I have the sense that what Ann Richert says is true. If indeed it is, then I think that is very sad for the students in our schools now and very troubling for the future of our society and our nation.
It is clear that what we are doing now in our educational systems isn't working. I don't pretend to know the answers but I have a feeling that those leading our school systems, our government officials, and the leaders of the teacher unions are more concerned about issues other than providing the best education possible for our students.
