It’s embarrassing for the students not the teachers.

So, to keep from embarrassing the students by firing the teachers who embarrass the students, we keep the teachers who will continue to embarrass their students anyway?

It makes no sense to me.

We need to get rid of the bad teachers who don't teach but indoctrinate LGBTQ and CRT ideology warping these poor kids minds. 

Teach them how not to be embarrassed when a teacher is fired and to be proud instead that they will finally be getting an education that's worth something in the future!!!

In 53 Illinois Schools, Not a Single Student Can Do Math at Grade Level

While teachers push Critical Race Theory and the sexualization of children in schools, academic rigor continues to slip lower and lower.
 
The Illinois State Board of Education’s recent report card is dreadful.
 
In 30 schools in Illinois, not a single student can read at grade level, 22 of which are in the City of Chicago.
 
In 53 schools, not a single student can do math at grade level, 33 of which are in  Chicago.
 
Keep dancing Mayor Lightfoot.
 
Wirepoints reports:
 
The absolute failure to teach even a single child to read and do math in so many schools is yet another indictment of the state’s educational system. At Wirepoints, we covered in detail the failures of Illinois education across the state in Poor student achievement and near-zero accountability: An indictment of Illinois’ public education system.
 
The data comes straight from the Illinois State Board of Education.
 
This column focuses on schools where zero percent of kids are able to read or do math. But we could have just as easily looked at the 622 schools where only 1 out of 10 kids or less can read at grade level. That’s a whopping 18 percent of the state’s 3,547 schools that tested students in 2022.
 
And only 1 out of 10 kids or less can do math at grade level in 930 schools…that’s more than a quarter of all schools in the state.
 
Defenders of the current system are sure to invoke covid as the big reason for the low scores. But a look at the 2019 numbers show that the reading and math numbers were only slightly better than they are now.
 
Take Spry, for example. Just 2 of the school’s 127 students in 2019 could read at grade level before the pandemic. In math, zero students were proficient.
 
The failure isn’t about money, either. Data from the Illinois State Board of Education shows spending at Spry was already at $20,000 per student before the pandemic. Today it spends $35,600.
 
What’s really incredible is that many of these schools are rated “commendable” by the Illinois State Board of Education. That’s the 2nd-highest of four “accountability” ratings a school can receive.
 
Not a single one of the 113 students at Sandoval Sr High School can read or do math at grade level. And yet the school is “commendable.”

Students need to know they can refuse to say anything that is sexual in nature even if a teacher insists. A school district can’t support that.  The teacher should only on be fired but investigated for sexual abuse of a child and pedophilia.

That doesn’t surprise me at all. Math must be taught properly and students should not get an automatic pass in the subject u til they can do at least C level work.

Absolutely... investigated and prosecuted by the law. Likewise, their teaching license must be suspended and they should never ever be allowed to work with children in any job again in the future.

All subjects, math, science, history and English... should require a minimum of a C- or perhaps even a D to pass. Hold the teachers accountable for their failure of teaching the children properly too! The children have already been punished by the teachers... now it's time to punish the teachers for not doing their job properly.

Schools aren’t required by law to help any child get more than a C so that should be their lowest goal as well.

Multiple Ohio elementary school kids are facing assault charges after disturbing video caught the group

Now that just can't be... I mean, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, nor any of the other liberal news media have carried this in their news... so it must be fake news! </sarcasm off>

Actually, I wonder if any of the liberal news media even covered this at all?

It was a small story but what gave them the idea they could do that? They were in elementary school so they weren’t over age 11. I want to know if it happened anywhere else. The NAACP said it was wrong but that the fighters should not be punished,
