Who put them in charge?
Below is a question from the parent of a school child. The parent is frustrated after dealing with school officials. Anyone have an answer? -- Tom Skoch
I always thought Education was the 2nd important thing in life? Your children are your first. I realize in life that without an Education, you will not be successful, I keep instilling that into my children, without an Education you will not have a real good paying job, therefor most of us who applied for a job that requires a strong Education background get that job because we met the qualifications, not because we knew someone in the system, but because we fit the profile requirements for that position, that is what the situation is most of the time, but what about the ones who are in charge of supervising the schools while our children are earning an education. What really qualifies a person to make sure our children are being taught, what qualifies them to make sure they are meeting the expectations of an education? What requirements do they have to meet in order to be in charge? I would think that because Education is very important that the qualified person meets the Degree requirements in order to supervise the education of our children, or have we come down to just put that person in the position because they are willing to do it, or the person supervising the school is a friend of a friend who is a friend. Times have changed, Teachers are under more pressure then ever, and the students are more out of control then ever before, the question is; Do we have the right people, the qualified people to control our environment? I am just a concerned parent.
