Not trying to start drama in here, just need somewhere to vent about this for a minute!
I stopped going on fb for a few months because of the stupidity. lol. Then school ended and I wasn't working anymore, so I pop on (much less than I used to still) now and then to see what everyone is up to. Well a coworker (soon to be former coworker when I resign next week) posted this yesterday:
"About freaking time...
The article is about them dismantling NCLB. This person is a good friend, I like her a lot, but her and her hubby (whom also works at the same school) are very democrat/liberal and I am just more conservative. They are good people and we get along great, we just have much different views, and I tend to listen to and somewhat believe what some would call conspiracy theories ;) (I also do my own research as well)
So I responded: "Just in time for common core...I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I don't think things will be getting any better."
A huge reason I am leaving the school is because they have been implementing CCSS over the past year and it is very sad to me to watch what it is doing to the teachers and, in turn, the students. Although I always wanted to be a teacher, the CCSS just goes against nearly everything I believe teaching should be.
So then this morning she posted this:
"I don't understand how people can live their lives focused on conspiracy theories and hearsay."
I want to respond (but I won't) by saying "I don't understand how people can't admit that conspiracy theories may have some truth behind them" or "a theory can be disproven, if there is proof against it, then someone should show it" lol, but I won't start the drama.
I'm just feeling better about my decision to hs and cannot wait to post that on fb and see the reactions from that!
