Professionality

Aim of some teachers?
It is not education
But simply put marks.

    Teaching isn't an easy profession, Mario. On occasion, some parents feel graded as much as their children. Sometimes not what their children know, but rather who they know. Makes it difficult and unfair for all concerned. Keep well, Mikki

    Yes, Linda. Scars, but also good marks, with a sort of drug leading to self adoration.

    I have been involved in education since I was a boy. Not gladly, owing to teachers. And I became a teacher hoping to change the school world. Without success. Give marks seems to give pleasure to teachers more than find students more skilled than the teacher. Thank you for coming, friend

    From what I see of the schools here, the teachers are teaching so that the children can pass a test called the CRCT..That is their only goal..Great work that you have written..Enjoyed reading this one today..Thanks for your visit..I still have not finished my work that I started..Don't know exactly which way I will go with it..Sara

    WE have tests with foolish answers and are becoming more and more pressing. It looks like education is an optional
