True, but then the parents can be identified. This way they can't.

I completely agree with you and am thankful we have "safe locations" in our society to drop off kids!

I don't know all the facts so maybe there is a logical reason these kids where there but my first thoughts are....

Yah know... This is super sad, but at least someone had the decency to abandon them, instead of kill them, which seems to be what is happening a lot lately! I hope they get warm food in their tummies, a nice bed to sleep in and lots of hugs.

I agree with you on vouchers and/or charter schools etc.

Teachers actually have limited power regarding what they get to teach in the classroom, how quickly they need to teach it, etc. I very much understand how multiple parties are frustrated with the education system.

I have always been a believer in public education and still believes it holds they key to educating the future society. In the mean time, I have pulled my kids from public school, because of all the problems impacting teachers and students.

It will be intersting to see what will happen with the adjustments to NCLB, which caused a lot of mayhem.

Smerking

Love the name!

Putting that aside, I am not a teacher in the district. You are welcome to your opinions but are incorrect when you aim them at me via the word "you".

KRAMR:

I am in absolute agreement that the union makes is very hard to fire poor quality teachers. This is a major frustration, I am sure, for many district administrators and teachers that witness this frustration.

In reality, it is the whole system that is screwing over kids, not the individual teachers. The system also contains of poor administrators, an embarrassing low about of academic days, large class sizes, and a horrible way of helping support students that require additional support (talented and gifted or special education).

I am pro education because I believe how our future society in America will act depends on the quality education received now. I know there are some great teachers in Reynolds, just like there are in other districts. It is a shame those teachers are being cast in a negative light.

Yes I am disgusted by how the district has handled this situation, but don't expect sympathetic viewers on this comment board. A lot of teacher bashing here!
