Success Story

To all the righties who take pleasure in knocking down MPS teachers, here is a story of one remembered by a student as having been a positive influence.

I can hear the cacophony already … ha ha ha, just one. Well, in response, that’s shortsighted and crude. Please note in the article (if you are able to read) that the student acknowledges that a positive home environment played a role in her success. That without it, her teacher’s efforts would likely have been for naught.

Teachers can only do so much. There has to be help on the home front.

Very few knock on teachers. Most knock on the misguided representation called WEAC.

And yes there is a difference

That's not been my impression, Clint. Most posts I've read always regard teachers in a negative light. Very few single out WEAC. Probably because most teachers are members of WEAC and consequently support its initiatives.
