NOW you've said something that both of us can agree on.

I can tell you it's very doubtful that you put in close to the hours that my son puts in throughout the school year. I know that I don't come close and I'm a small business owner. So, it's not for lack of trying on his part to make sure the kids get the best education that he can provide for them. Painting teachers with a broad brush as incompetents is just plain ignorant.

Yes, there are teachers that slide by doing the bare minimum, but these are the rare exception at least in this area. All the regulations and documentations that are now thrust upon them make it harder to effectively teach the subject matter than it used to be in the days when we weren't the "dumbed down society" that we are now.
