All our jobs…

RE: Chris Betcher’s thoughtful post

I believe that our whole community needs to take responsibility for learning, not just teachers. An excellent doctor is a must but just as important is a community that values good health and by holding this value, helps everyone on the right path towards that goal. Parents have a particular responsibility, as do grandparents, brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts for education. Our community attitudes towards learning shape our culture. Our community attitudes towards learning shape our teachers – and vice versa. Good policy helps. We need to move past the counter-productive era of scapegoating. We must nurture a new generation of teachers while affording respect to those professionals who have spent a life time educating our children. IMHO.
