Another post reminded me of some really craptastic teachers at my kids' school.
One teacher gives the kids three vocabulary words to write down, three. Then they get FREE computer time the rest of the period. He's a freaking FRESHMAN. Not a 1st grader. My tax dollars pay this woman to sit around and do NOTHING all day.
There are some good teachers out there, but honestly some of them are ridiculous.
That's just one example of what we've dealt with. No wonder my kids were bored out of their minds.
My son now homeschools because of it.
