The time has come to once again ruffle some feathers. Something has to be said.
The sad thing is that I’m afraid most people will get the impression that I dislike all teachers, which couldn’t be further from the truth. My 2nd and 3rd oldest’s 1st grade teachers were AMAZING – truly godly women who genuinely cared about their students and respected the role of the family. Along the way, we’ve encountered many other teachers who have been blessings to everyone who encountered them.
Unfortunately, those teachers are now few and far between. Universities are now pumping out teachers who completely disregard the authority of parents, the priority of the family, and who insert themselves as the ruling authority over their students, trumping parents every chance they get.
They’re masters at convincing people that they do these things because they care, and to be fair, I’m sure some really do care, but when a teacher’s primary objective is to elevate either themselves or the school over the family, people need to wake up.
Since the schools have shut down, these teachers are scrambling to keep their place on the totem pole, and it has to STOP.
