Certifiable

August 24th, 2008

In an opinion piece headlined JS Online: Respect teachers, viagra sales despite problems, levitra Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist Eugene Kane writes:

Teachers, staff and faculty at MPS will begin another year of being the most underappreciated professionals in society. Put it another way; how many times do you have to recertify in your job to keep earning a living?

Well, outside the world of Unions and government service, most employs are “recertified” each and every day that their employers decide not to fire them.

    If teachers had a nickel for every time we heard how underpaid and underappreciated they are, they would be millionaires.

    Certification is a state requirement, just like in social work. Being employed does not equate to being recertified, but the need to be recertified does equate to whether one is employed. Recertification requires off jobsite extra training. Usually at the individuals expense.

    In other words, being taxed to stay in that profession.

    I know you got your love/hate thing going on for Eugene, but that’s a stretch, old boy.

    I just have a bug up my butt when it comes to teachers (I actually got a bad grade, once. Can you believe it? (Well, of course you can. (And it wasn’t in social studies, no matter what you think!)))

    Gym or Sex ed?

    Gym, it must be hard to climb rope or jump hurdles in a wheelchair.

    Sex ed…I’ll just leave that alone.
