It was Ronald Reagan that said, "The scariest words in the English language: 'I'm from the government, and I'm here to help.'"
He was truly a visionary...who knew that the resounding words of nearly 30 years ago would hold true today. Being a school administrator, and an individual who values a quality education, I am becoming more appalled and disillusioned as each day goes by regarding the empty campaign promises to reform education, and when pencil comes to paper, education is not near the priority as candidates made it to be.
I costs money to educate children to compete in the global market of 20 years from now. Folks don't realize that we have predict what the world will be like in the future, develop skills that don't exist, and educate children to be successful in a world that we have not yet seen...
And a group of people who have never been in a classroom as a teacher or an office as a principal are making decisions that make this virtually impossible.
I'm little stressed today.
