Plus, a lot of parents today don't take an active role in their child's education, that's why we're going down the tubes in education. I didn't say the NCLB had bad intentions, just a goal that's nearly impossible without adequate funding.

Typical whiny liberal BS.

A teacher is a "professional" job and as such it is considered salaried. A salaried job is essentially this, you agree to do a certain job for a set amount of money. However long it takes you doesn't change your salary and there is no such thing as "free labor" just slow workers. I work with lots of salaried people and I'll tell you this, a salaried position is for people who suck at math. I prefer to get paid for the amount of time I work and I do. I also get overtime and holiday pay. Yeah, I could go salaried and get a higher base salary, but I'd never make what I make now getting paid the way I get paid.

I also don't get all the days off teachers get. Nor do I get two and a half months off in the summer, all with pay. So you daddy can STFU and either do his job or find one that is more amenable to his lazy assed way of thinking.

His mentality is stereotypical. Reality is perception. Rather than document and track performance he just wants to be able to say it's done, rather than prove it's been done. I work in the engineering field and that don't fly. Nor should it in anything important and education is about as important as it gets.
