Teachers...does this sound familiar?

 

Thread

 

 

This is pretty much spot on.

 

I have, at times, been given "certain students"  relate better to me before of certain features I have.

 

I have also had certain students because I was their coach or because their parents requested me (shocking, I know, that one hardly ever happens)

 

I also worked with an administrator that got all bad black kids because he was black, sent to him when they were in trouble. 

 

I have also offered to take certain kids in my class.  One of the (very) few things I am good at is classroom management, so I have in the past offered to take a kid or two that were going to be horrible.  

 

Ironically I have never been given a student based on my ability to teach or knowledge of the subject matter.

I did not know that it wasn't?

 

They don't always call it Civics, usually it is Gov or AP Gov, but I think all schools require it, that I know of.  I taught it years ago to 7th graders.

 

With that said, it could probably use some revamping but I think the basics are there.  I still with that we would register HS kids to vote when they are juniors/seniors in HS.  Get them registered early!

I don't know how requirements work. Are there requirements that local districts have and then other requirements that the state has?  So, local school districts could have the requirement but it's not a requirement right now at the state level?

English Language Arts - 40 credit hours, ● Mathematics – 30 credit hours, ● Science – 30 credit hours, and, ● Social Studies – 30 credit hours.

 

That is the basics for the core classes.  I would guess that Civics/Gov/Poly Sci would be one of the required courses but I guess there might be districts that toss in something else.

Maybe Chicago public schools would be better off with better leadership and the kids better off with school choice (and probably better parents who took a more active role in their education)

The Illinois Report Card recently released a report showing Chicago Public Schools spent $29,000 per student, and the teachers in the district are among the highest paid in big cities.

Chicago Teachers Union is trash.  I believe they are the ones that fought really hard to stay shut down after COVID because teachers liked staying home.
