Pull up a chair in my domestic church and let's chat!

I have worn many labels (Not in any particular order): Catholic, Wife, Mom,Gramma, Doctor, Major, Soccer Mom, Military Wife, Professor, Fellow.

All of these filter my views of the world. I hope that like St. Monica, I can through prayer, words and example, lead my children and others to Faith.

Classroom teachers may not be the real burden

The cover article of today's Washington Times Sunday Read section includes a long article chronicling the woes of teachers being laid off due to the economic downturn. The cover picture in the print edition is not included in the online version, but it shows angry teachers in SEIU t-shirts protesting the lay-offs. If teachers want support, they might want to downplay their SEIU connection considering the actions of SEIU thugs in St. Louis. (H/T The Anchoress)

Of course, it is the classroom teachers who are getting the pink slips. Perhaps we could save more money and improve our educational system if we got rid of the high paid administrators who come up with all the social-engineering educational theories and politically correct curricula. Maybe our schools would once again become havens of true education instead of dens of indoctrination. (See here and here)

Really. Catholic schools operate without an administration over them (other than the principal and pastor, if it's a parish school.) And they seem to do a very good job. Let's let parents and teachers run their own schools. They are the ones in the best positions to evaluate results.

Besides, you can pay 3 teachers on what ONE administrator makes in salary and benefits.
