Fill in the blank: "I think the world would be a better place if students learned more ______ in school."
Personally, I don't think the problem is with the schools. Teachers have their hands full every day with rude, violent and uncivilized children. I think the world would be a better place if students learned from their parents how to respect their elders and not argue with authority.
Teachers are there to teach our kids the necessary knowledge in order to survive in today's world. Kids today take school for granted and parents expect teachers to teach the kids EVERYTHING. Many parents today don't want to be bothered with teaching their children manners or the difference between right and wrong. Teachers should not be the main disciplinarian in a child's life.
Three cheers for teachers!! They have the hardest job in the world and in my opinion, the greatest job in the world - they are teaching our next generation.
