Gerry, I love you, you're one of the reasons I keep coming here, you are hilarious and awesome. But I must respectfully disagree with you on teachers failing us. Government policies and spending on education have failed us.

1: Standardized testing is evil. It tests almost nothing other than a student`s ability to take a standardized test, and you have no idea how many hours are wasted trying to get kids to perform well (and admittedly failing on that point) instead of, you know, teaching.

Point 2: How do you expect to attract skilled workers with crap pay? Sad truth: I make 50% more money teaching abroad with a bachelors degree than I would make with a master`s degree in the states.

There`s a joke about no one going into teaching for the money. But a girl`s gotta eat.

And don`t even get me started on the state by state certifications. If I`ve been a good teacher for years and years in one state, I probably don`t need to take a course and test in teac

They get a raise when the earn it.

That's why I like the payment model of golf. Gotta earn that cheese.
