NEA believes we're amateurs

Here's a great opportunity to teach your children a little logic. Help them find all the logical fallacies in this article on the NEA website. (Don't worry it won't be hard to find them.)

David Arnold, head custodian, at a school district in Illinois believes we're amateurs and that teaching children is too important

There's nothing like having the right person with the right experience, skills and tools to accomplish a specific task. Certain jobs are best left to the pros, such as, formal education. (snip)

Don’t most parents have a tough enough job teaching their children social, disciplinary and behavioral skills? They would be wise to help their children and themselves by leaving the responsibility of teaching math, science, art, writing, history, geography and other subjects to those who are knowledgeable, trained and motivated to do the best job possible.

If these teachers are knowledgeable....how come they haven't found a way get the kids to clean the bathrooms like we have????

Thanks for the advice but I think I'll pass on your "wsidom" Mr. Arnold. Here's my definition of a teacher.

(I will continue my post on Created To Be His Help Meet but it may not be until Monday.)
