    Agreed! Here in Florida, the mantra seems to be "We hate teachers. They are overpaid babysitters." :|

    1. our lesson plans are checked, but that doesn't mean I'm doing what is actually on them
    2. Our principal rarely has time to go around and do drop ins
    4. No chance I would teach with a camera in my classroom. Being watched, spied on, and even when the kids are gone having no privacy. That is just wrong.

    Babysitters would get paid a lot more if they had that many kids to watch. It would be a really well paid job if that were the case.

    The operative words are - "the politicians". What the heck do they know about education! They are not in the classroom - they don't even work with kids. It is like a bunch of teachers (not college professors) mandating how to carry out specific neurological surgeries!

    :lol: I did that last year. They'd overhauled the air handlers so they could be controlled thru central office and there are now blinking lights that can be seen inside the covers of the air handlers. I told the kids that central office had installed cameras in there.
