Subject: RE: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
Ebbie--I didn't say teachers weren't "caring, fun, creative, talented people" at all. Either young or old--I was pointing out that the combination of "No Child Left Behind" and high-stakes testing has changed our educational system so much that many of the older "good" teachers have chosen to leave it.

I very seldom say anything against teachers. As a former teacher who worked outside of the profession for an number of years, I've rarely run across people who work as hard as teachers, and that includes the teachers that people didn't like very much...
