Read this article and tell me what you think.
I do believe that teachers have a lot to deal with. The kids in their classes have dysfunctional parents and home lives. Some don't have parents. Kids learn at different levels. So yes, I believe it is tough being a teacher.
Is this the whole story though? Is it really a matter of teachers fighting against impossible odds? Are they blameless on the outcome in schools?
What are your thoughts?
