I don't know who said this, but this is what I feel is going to happen in the schools with all the budget cuts going on....
"We the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible, for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing."
Thanks for letting me vent. I need to add some qualifiers to the quote...we teachers are "unwilling" to continue doing more with less, yet we do what is asked of us. the "unknowing" are the politicians who keep cutting the budget without considering what they are doing in the long run, "the impossible" is that the teachers out there are still going in every day and giving it all they have to educate the students, "ungrateful" are the people outside education who don't realize that teachers don't get paid for the days they don't work, nor do they get paid for the days that they work outside their contracted days. I think the second half of the quote speaks for itself.
