Some Lawmakers Want Changes to Education
Almost every school in the Valley will be asking the General Assembly for more money this session. But one lawmaker wants to take a closer look.

    How many years of teaching does Mr. Bell have. He had no idea what teachers go through and do on a daily basis. Stick him in a classroom of 25 to 30 fourth graders that have IEP's and special needs lets see him work his magic. It is real easy to have a solution when you are looking from afar and not in touch with reality. Teachers are observed more now than they have ever been. Instead of critizing our teachers Mr. Bell, get a clue ans support them in their struggle against kids that do nto care, parents who are not involved, low funding, little supplies available, and all the other problems teachers face every day. I am willing to bet he has somebody needing money for one of thier pocket interest, so lets cut education and get whatever his hiding agenda interest group wants. Mr. Bell you are no friend to the teachers and the people are not blind to what you are really trying to do. Funnel money elsewhere to please your "people".

    How exactly is a person's individual value determined? I get that they do teacher evaluations and that those evaluations are very concise and specific as to what each individual is evaluated on; however, there are factors that affect how a teacher is able to do his/her job that is out of each individual's control (students refusing to do work, lack of supplies, etc). Saying one teacher is worth more than another is putting the education system into very dangerous waters.
