What is wrong with today’s parents? Why are most of their children so horribly rude and arrogant, and just plain disrespectful?
There is nothing wrong with most of the parents, nor their parenting skills and practices, in my opinion. There IS something wrong with at least one thing that most of the parents are doing; sending their children to the state/county schools. I am told by many parents that many of the private schools don’t even seem to be qualified to conduct a respectable baby sitting service now-a-days.
Let’s check this little gem of a video. This is revealing and shocking, well, for some of us. Of course, not all students and/or schools are like this, though I do think this is typical, average, or the “norm” for public schooled children now-a-days:
(The below video is so sad it’s funny, but please disregard the videos that are tagged to follow after this school “news” reporter video. Some look kind of weird.)
My own parents are now retired from their careers as professional educators. My brother, sister, cousins, aunt and most of my family are also all excellent teachers. I finished a B.A. degree in Education at U.S.C. in 1993 and began teaching at Vineyard Montessori School in Massachusetts. From there I went to Hilton Head, S.C. to a public elementary school. Then, to learn the Spanish language, I went to Miami and taught in a private, church school. To learn the Spanish language more fluently, I decided to get a job teaching at an international school in South America through the AASSA. After attending a AASSA job fair in Orlando, and being offered a position in 56 different countries in South America, I went to Ecuador and taught in Guayaquil for 2 years. When the director of the American school in Ecuador asked me to come to Spain and teach at the American School in Las Palmas, I did. I then returned and continued teaching in a public school in Miami.
In my opinion, a “real” teacher, , enjoys, desires and thrives when continually learning new things.
There is nothing wrong, or bad, about a person teaching in the town, or even the school they grew up in, but I am not one of those teachers. I have been a few places and taught in a few different schools. And this is not required to be a “real” teacher. My point is that I am not short sighted or narrow minded about the academic “world” or the teaching profession. I have been a licensed, full time teacher since 1994 until I resigned in 2006 to become a full time partner with the business of domestic engineering and home education, and a part time USCG master & educational evaluator/test administrator. Though I couldn’t stay away from the challenges of the county school classroom for long.
