We tend to blame the teachers for failing students and bad test scores. Various  governments tend to come down hard on the teachers, but is it really the teachers? Is our government wherever we are helping or hindering the students? Could it possibly be the government intervention that is hurting our school systems resulting in failing students? Are we enabling our students by making them believe they have learning disabilities or mental issues? Is it fair to base teachers pay on test scores? Have we asked the students what we could do to help improve their scores?Are we treating our students like criminals rather than children because of whats going on around us? Do parents need to be move involved or does it really matter? How can we help our teachers before we blame them? I believe we should start by asking them.
