I am signing because it is the correct thing to do. Also, how in the Hell am I supposed to trust a guy that gets his hair color from a bottle of Shineola Oxblood shoe polish?

I am a teacher with a masters degree. I love what I do but we are already paid so little for the work we do. Many of us will soon not be able to afford healthcare at the rate it keeps rising.

Teacher's should be paid a salary that would allow them to live comfortably. If we don't start giving teachers the financial support they need to support their families, we will lose them to other jobs. You are either a teacher or you are not. If you do not receive a since of satisfaction from investing your love, time, and energy into others you are not a teacher, and do not belong in the classroom. It does harm to society as a whole to hire whoever will take the job and stick them in the room as a warm body. There will be no learning going on in that class and will be a waste of the taxpayers money. Come on Texas, let's do this right and give our kids the best.

teachers cannot teach they only can teach this test. That is doing the students a great disservice. This problem with students not performing is not the teachers fault it starts in the home. Parents are the main problem and you cannot legislate students to care. It just puts undue pressure on the teachers.

This is absolutely asinine to use a test as a tool as to whether a teacher is performing or not. Why don't we get rid of the STAAR test go back to letting teachers teach and have a year end exam that covers everything that was taught. If th at ease to happen and then you wanted to evaluate them on the year end exam that would be acceptable.
