Maybe it’s time we let our politicians know, it’s enough…
I had posted this on our community page. The responses have been great. Thought provoking to say the least.
I’ve heard from teachers to students and people within the community.
I’ve never understood why those working(ex teachers)the actual job have no voice as to what methods work most effectively. The experts have given layouts and all of that’s great but many feel it is nothing but a false sense of security. Things within America don’t seem to be getting much better given all the expert advice we have from whoever these “experts” are.
People from all fields are offering to help at no cost.
In the comments I will leave an email sent by a high school student to the superintendent. Her figures are off about the number of shootings but gives you a glimpse into how many are feeling.
Many teachers feel like puppets and their hands completely tied by the system.
I was able to speak with the superintendent and will be talking with him Tuesday to hopefully plan or begin a community talk. This is the post:
Given all the posts about the recent school shooting in Florida, I have been wondering if we as a community need to come up with something that may help to begin changes.
The teachers are the ones who see these children daily. They see the social breakdown, family problems, emotional changes before any of us. The teachers are the ones who would, with their own bodies shield a child and possibly lose their own lives. The teachers need to be heard. Some of these teachers have better ideas than our own politicians, teachers know the system better then you or I do.
Every time a tragedy like this occurs it’s the same play out;
1-prayers(nothing wrong with that)but no actions.
2-we blame the democrats or republicans.
3-our politicians debate and make promises that are never put into actions.
4-everything goes back to normal.
Maybe we as a community need to get the ball rolling.
My question is; how do we hold some type of community talk?
Who do we contact?
Can we just hold a community talk with teachers in the public library or school cafeteria?
Teachers need to be heard and together just maybe we can be the beginning of some type of change.
