They stifle the budgets, create “exams” to judge whether a student is learning or not, and blame the teachers when students cannot pass the exam.
Given that we’re now going through probably the 2nd generation where (most) parents don’t accept responsibility for their kid’s education, and blame the teachers. This certainly motivates teachers to find better jobs & leave education. Then parents & local government politicians whine that teachers don’t want to teach. State & Federal politicians are probably smiling at teh situation.
This is not my quote, but a wise man once said, “The Government wants you to be just smart enough to spend your life working to pay taxes.” I completely agree. And many people fell for it.
