I Don’t Care What My Son Learns in Elementary School

I care a lot more about the environment than I do about the content

For the record: I do value my son’s education.

I appreciate teachers and the near-impossible task they are handed every single day: Please, educate these children. No, you may not have any more resources. No, you may not have better ventilation in your classroom. No, you may not have additional professional development days.

Also, we have a few extra students for you this year. They all have IEPs, and no, you cannot have another EA in your classroom.

Whenever I write a smart-assed article about public education, I want to make very clear that I’m not here to knock teachers.
