Having a daughter who teaches at a high school really makes me aware of everything they do in trying to educate our young people who will become tomorrow's leaders. (Tomorrow's leaders and tomorrow's voters. Sobering thought, isn't it?) More and more their hands are tied with interference and regulations (government and school board) and all the while they are having to make do with inadequate funding.
What price can we put on properly preparing our youth for the real world when they finish school? I am so grateful for the educators who truly try to make a difference in their students' lives, in spite of all the road blocks that are thrown in front of them. And I'm saddened when I read about the ones who quit in frustration because they aren't allowed to teach the kids in a way that they know will get through to them.
So, to the teachers who are out there on the front lines every day trying to make a difference, I say "Thank you" and tip my hat to you. And make a card in your honor after getting off my soap box. *grin*
